NYFWA Statement Regarding the 2018 Financial Follies

Some attendees of our Nov. 9 event took offense at certain parody songs that accompany the annual Financial Follies dinner. The NYFWA board wishes to make clear that was not our intention and we apologize for any offense taken.

The Final Meltdown

To the tune of The Final Countdown by Europe

 

FANS:

He’s our superhero
The real Iron Man
But one thing he’s lacking
Is attention span

 

MUSK:

Where are the aliens? Really odd that we see no sign of them.

FANS:

His Trump-like gaslighting must stop
The midnight tweets (midnight tweets)
We need him to build some frickin’ cars

It's the final meltdown
The final meltdown

 

NYFWA Stands With America's Free Press

The New York Financial Writers' Association condemns acts of violence and harassment toward reporters. In a year where reporters have been shot, heckled, harassed and now, evacuated on live air due to bomb threats, we should all pause to remember the vital role the free press plays in our democracy – and our economy. President Donald Trump's hateful rhetoric toward the free press cannot become the new normal. NYFWA members stand with our fellow reporters. Journalists are not the enemy of the people. They are the people.

NYFWA Gears Up to Skewer Bankers, Executives & Politicians at 76th Financial Follies

For 365 days a year, we're all forced to swallow the painful reality of the daily news headlines like a bitter pill.

But at least one night a year, we're offered a spoonful of sugar to help that nasty medicine go down.

And what a spoonful of sugar it is!  Costumes.  Singing.  Dancing.  Pageantry.  Comedy –with an edge (a sharp edge!).  And the best food and drink that Manhattan can offer.

This year – November 9th is that night – and this year that sugar promises to be sweeter than ever!
