Skip to comments.Hag Gagged: Helen Thomas' half-century career ends in scandal
Posted on 06/07/2010 4:18:24 PM PDT by Abakumov
Play the end of the movie "Schindler's List" backward - the compelling scene in which refugees emerge from the hell of the Holocaust to freedom in Israel - and you will get a glimpse into the tortured mind of Helen Thomas....
Ms. Thomas expressed mild regret for her remarks, saying they do not reflect her "heartfelt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance." She should have heeded her own counsel. Ms. Thomas' comments embodied contempt and intolerance. They were a stark message of hatred from the dean of the White House Press corps, the kind of toxic speech that disqualifies someone from a position of public trust. She now enters her long-overdue retirement, tainting a half-century of White House reporting with the memory of a vile 30-second rant.

Her legacy was tainted long before this latest rant.
Was it only 1/2 a century? I thought she was covering the Lincoln assassination as a cub-reporter.
Really.....way to go out on top, with class. Course it woulda helped if it was there to begin with.......
Most American “progressives” of her era think national socialism was the way to go ... and they never outgrew their anti-Semitism. She deserves what she brought upon herself ... she should have gotten it about 48 years ago though.
And rightfully so- this is how history will remember her.
A legacy of hatred and vile.
She is as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside.
She did it to HERSELF!! LOL!!!
Day 4 of Obama not commenting. Where the heck is Rahm Emanuel? I could have sworn he was Jewish and from Israel.
Reminds me of my grandmother who became very spiteful and hateful at the end.
Headline says she’s gagged. Turn about is fair play. She’s been making me gag for years.
May she go directly to a nursing home where employee’s will spit in her food.
Her peak came in the 1970s. Somewhere in the Regan-era...she became highly judgmental. She’d take one basic fact, and then fluff three hundred words of judgement around that one fact. I think she was coasting through the 80’s...and heading downward for the past two decades. The funny thing is that the AP paid her probably around $100k a year....for a 2-star wannabe journalist ability.
She’s really gone? Did somebody throw a bucket of water on her just to be sure?
Ding, dong the witch is dead!
LOL ... Helen Thomas is such an old hag that when she graduated journalism school the Dead Sea was just getting sick and her opinions were literally written in stone.
yes it was. Brit Hume discussed this a few hours ago also. I am glad to see her forced out in disgrace. she still might get some sort of retirement gala thrown for her by a bunch of her elitist scum DC pals spoogin’ all over her with accolades, but it will not be the same.
