Members of the media made a strong showing at Wednesday night's state dinner for British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Politico reported that the White House extended more invitations to people in the media industry — including executives and journalists from PBS, Newsweek, the Washington Post and BET — than politics.

The guest list featured at least a dozen media heavyweights. They included: Vogue editor Anna Wintour, PBS' Charlie Rose, The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart, The Newsweek/Daily Beast's Andrew Sullivan, Financial Times managing editor Gillian Tett, Financial Times editor Lionel Barber, BET CEO Debra Lee, Nickelodeon chief of staff Marva Smalls, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editor-in-chief John Robinson Block, Times Publishing Company CEO Paul Tash, BBC World News correspondent Katty Kay and senior ABC producer Virginia Moseley.

Wintour and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow also went to a luncheon hosted by Secretary of State Clinton and Vice President Biden on Wednesday.
