Thomas gets dropped by agency
Politico.com ^ | 6 June 2010 | None listed

Posted on 06/06/2010 1:46:39 PM PDT by OCCASparky

Nine Speakers, the agency that represents Helen Thomas, has dropped her as a client. This comes in the wake of controversial remarks on the Middle East.

The notice, obtained by POLITICO:

It is with a heavy heart that Nine Speakers, Inc. announces its resignation as the agent for Helen Thomas, Dean of the White House Press Corps.

Ms. Thomas has had an esteemed career as a journalist, and she has been a trailblazer for women, helping others in her profession, and beyond.

However, in light of recent events, Nine Speakers is no longer able to represent Ms. Thomas, nor can we condone her comments on the Middle East.

Nine Speakers will continue to enthusiastically represent all of our other current and future clients.

Give a liberal journalist enough time, and they'll show their racist colors.

She just took a century longer than most.

Shocked that it took that long, or that it actually happened at all?

Didn’t Lincoln once have her detained for pro-rebel sympathies? Or was that Washington for her tory remarks?

“Shocked that it took that long, or that it actually happened at all?”

Both! Don’t know if I’m correct but I haven’t noticed the Helen Thomas antisemetic remark being discussed on the msm, so I figured, yep, when one of their own makes a remark it’s a free pass.

No, that was Robert Byrd.

“We no longer represent Helen for books or lectures or anything else,” Nine added in an email to the Huffington Post.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Time Magazine’s Joe Klein penned a post for the website arguing that Thomas should no longer be able to sit in the front row at daily press briefings — albeit because she was a editorialist as much as for her incendiary remarks.

"Ms. Thomas has had an esteemed career as a journalist, and she has been a trailblazer for women..."

Uh..."Trailblazer"? Guffaw! Can anybody recall just one significant piece she might have written? A single major story she broke in all the years she parked herself at the White House? Anybody?...(crickets)...

Actually, I think her anti-Semetism took off when she didn't get to join the Jews when Moses led them out of Egypt.

She probably helped Pharaoh write up the order decreeing the Israelites had to make their bricks with no straw.

She had an “agent”?
Maybe she can be a stringer for al Jazeera.

Obama has made Jew-hating chic in the ‘inner circle’. They just have to be more careful of how much that perspective is revealed to the unwashed masses, who still believe the content of a man’s character is more important.

She’s like the crazy uncle of the family or Milton (shameless “Office Space” reference) who you really wish would go away, but nobody has the heart to tell them to STFU.

But she escaped and traveled with the Donner Party out to the West. It’s said she survived by bartering her writing skills for food. Others dispute her account of the journey’s events.
