With Regrets (Helen Thomas' agent and her co-author dump her)
CQ Politics ^ | 6/6/10 | Craig Crawford

Posted on 06/06/2010 2:16:13 PM PDT by Nachum

I concur with the following response from my agent to Helen Thomas' lamentable remarks about Israel, and will no longer be working with Helen on our book projects. -- Craig Crawford

"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." -- Diane Nine (ninespeakers@usa.net)

Freepers should be encouraged to send email to her bosses at the Hearst Corp. and demand that the Jew-hating old hag be fired. The email is on the Hearst website.

Thomas will pay a visit to her ex-agent’s office to turn everyone there into stone.

It looks like the lancepoint of truth has penetrated yet another chink in the armor of the MSM. Helen has lost her 'Dean of the WH Journalists' aura.

Retire now, Helen. Better late than never.

Were those crocadile tears visible during your apology. NO, they were dinosaur tears. A 'croc' nevertheless.

Former Israeli leader Golda Meier was no prettier, but I'd never call her ugly. Ugly comes from within.

I bet you can only hear “crickets” on the msm regarding Helen Thomas. I would love to see her emails. I would bet the vast majority of those in the msm are supporting her.

i find it bizarre that they have not let her go--even before her hate-filled remarks, but especially since her ani-Semitic rant... she's fricken old... she's not valuable to them... now would be a good time to tell her to hang it up...

I love the comments. “Patsi” is concerned that “in the current climate” Thomas will be subjected to heckling and possibly physical violence. If Thomas had insulted Islam or was a conservative then “Patsi” would be right. Projection is one of the many psycological issues the left deals with.

Craig Crawford is a moral coward. He should have dumped Helen as a co-author immediately. Instead he waited to see what the fallout would be from her anti-semitism. Now that she's being dumped by his agent, whom he shared with Helen, does he take a courageous stand and turn his back on his Jew hating friend.

Ugly comes from within.

Very true. My favorite line from a Jimmy Buffet song - "his (her in this case) heart was made in hell." Unfortunately, there are many more where she came from. Still waiting for Hearst and the president to take issue with the disgusting comment. Age is NO excuse. She is old enough to know better. She should be fired for the remark.

Helen Thomas:
Liberal.
"Journalist".
Jew hater.

Hey, guess who Helen Thomas HATES?! If you said "Tea Partiers" and "George W. Bush" you're right! Helen LOVED the passage of Obamacare, too!

Seems as though Helen Thomas has a lot in common with Obama!

And you KNOW that ‘Ninespeakers” came to this decision only after a board meeting, convened to discuss the fallout and how it might affect their bottom line. It has nothing to do with principle.

I’m SO glad to see this! SOMEONE with either brains, or that is truly offended.

I sent a polite letter to the White House requesting that her press credentials be stripped... Don’t worry I’m not holding my breath, but I thought it was worth a shot...

“Helen was a big moneymaker as a “Pole” dancer”.

Meaning she enjoys dancing on the bodies of the Jewish “Poles” murdered by the Nazi's. Maybe Helen should run the U.N. like Ex Nazi Kurt Waldheim did. Her comments must serve as a qualification for the job.
