    Helen Thomas reflected the gender diversity of the mainstream media, a good thing.

    Her radical left politics reflected the total lack of diversity in the mainstream media of the more important element of political philosophy....

    RIP.

     

    On politics:  Liberal politics can be tolerated.  Thomas was a vocal anti-semetic, which in the end, was the undoing of her career.

    Re: R.I.P. Helen Thomas

    Veteran White House journalist Helen Thomas, who resigned in June over comments many viewed as anti-Semitic, has taken to the airwaves to defend the remarks, saying they were "exactly what I thought."

    "I hit the third rail," Thomas told Ohio radio station WMRN-AM in an interview that aired today. "You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive."

    Thomas, 90, caused an uproar May 27 when she said Israelis should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to Poland, Germany, America and "everywhere else."

    "They distorted my remarks, which they obviously have to do for their own propaganda purposes, otherwise people might wonder why they continue to take Palestinian land," Thomas told WMRN reporter Scott Spears during the radio interview, referring to the Israelis.

    Thomas also called accusations that she's anti-Semitic "baloney," saying that she hopes her legacy will be her "integrity and my honesty and my belief in good journalism."

    R.I.P. Helen.

    You did not let them get away with a thing.

    You paved the way for a lot of women to follow.

    well, when you accuse someone of being anti-semetic usually it's their side of the "story" that you want to hear...
