HELEN THOMAS ANGRY AFTER 'KILL SELF' OVER CHENEY COMMENTS PUBLISHED
White House press doyenne Helen Thomas is plenty peeved at her longtime friend Albert Eisele, editor of THE HILL newspaper in Washington, D.C.
In a column this week headlined "Reporter: Cheney's Not Presidential Material," Eisele quoted Thomas as saying "The day Dick Cheney is going to run for president, I'll kill myself. All we need is one more liar."
Thomas also said: "I think he'd like to run, but it would be a sad day for the country if he does," according to Eisele's column.
But Thomas said yesterday at the White House that her comments to Eisele were for his ears only. "I'll never talk to a reporter again!" Thomas was overheard saying.
"We were just talking -- I was ranting -- and he wrote about it. That isn't right. We all say stuff we don't want printed," Thomas said.
But Eisele said that when he called Thomas, "I assume she knew that we were on the record."
"She's obviously very upset about it, but it was a small item -- until Drudge picked it up and broadcast it across the universe," Eisele said.
Still, he noted that reporters aren't that happy when the tables are turned. "Nobody has thinner skin than reporters," Eisele said with a laugh.
No doubt the reporter was confused. Helen said she was "ranting", and, of course, she is always "ranting", nonstop, 24/7.
"Nobody has thinner skin than reporters,"
""I'll never talk to a reporter again!" Thomas was overheard saying."
You mean it was just BS, right Helen?
In the words of Dirty Harry Callahan, Helen: "Well, do it at home!"
It's your profession that needs a few suicides!!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha....Poor HellAnn
We ain't dat lucky!
She's just ticked because the media doesn't have total control anymore. Too bad, she said it. The shoe is on the other foot.
Helen thinks she should be immune to the consequences of her poisonous rantings.
So Crazy Helen actually is "the source" of the "I'll kill myself" comment in Albert Eisele's piece?
This is too sweet. Another 10 million will see this via Drudge by tomorrow morning.
Helen has managed to put both feet in her fat mouth.
This about Helen of Troy?.....what?... she IS Helen of Troy!
Like we don't already know you're a wacko nutcase, Helen.
