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.

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.

New Headline: "Helen Thomas Confirms See Will Kill Herself"

Seems like that is the way the NYTimes would title the article, if Helen were a republican, which thankfully she is not.

Helen thinks she should be immune to the consequences of her poisonous rantings.

Hypocrite.

So Crazy Helen actually is "the source" of the "I'll kill myself" comment in Albert Eisele's piece?

Helen has managed to put both feet in her fat mouth.

I know Cheney said he is not running, bu I'm sure the thought is very tempting.

"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.

Guess she thinks that rule should only apply to her....of course, I have no doubt she's backstabbed plenty.

Yes, we do Helen .. like when President Bush called a reporter an "a$$hole" - I didn't see the press having any problem printing that statement.

One thing Helen Thomas doesn't have is "thin skin". Her face looks like elephant hide!!! But no one would ever make such an ugly comment if Helen didn't richly deserve the turn-about. She's been trash mouthing republicans for years!

Helen of Troy was said to have had the face that launched a thousand ships. That's ships. With a P. I'm just saying

If a Republican makes an unfavorable comment, the whole world hears about it, but reporters are exempt?

I'd like to get the Freepers, opinion - who is uglier: Helen Thomas or Molly Ivins?

No, she meant it. She just didn't want anyone else knowing she said something so stupid [because she is so stupid]

Isn't there a Ann Koulter rule here on FR... that if you post a thread on Ann Koulter that you also must include a revealing picture of her?

And I think the same is true of Anna Kournikova.

So what about a Helen Thomas rule?

She looks an awful lot like a black pot in that picture, now swearing never to talk to black kettles.
