Wiki

Helen Thomas (born August 4, 1920) is an American news service reporter, former Hearst Newspapers columnist,  member of the White House Press Corps and author. She served for fifty-seven years as a correspondent  and, later, White House bureau chief for United Press International (UPI). Thomas covered every president of the United States  since the later years of the Eisenhower administration, coming to the forefront with John F. Kennedy. She was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female member and president of the White House Correspondents Association, and, in 1975, the first female member of the Gridiron Club. She has written five books; her latest with co-author Craig Crawford is Listen Up, Mr. President: Everything You Always Wanted Your President to Know and Do. Thomas retired on June 7, 2010, after her controversial comments about Israel, Jews, and Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the Internet.

I thought journalist were suppose to be unbiased? She stayed way past her prime. She is the crazy grandmother at your Thanksgiving day table. After she rants and leaves the room you all look around at each other and ask, "What are we going to do about Nana"?
Quick Tip by . June 09, 2010
A dame (some may say relic) of the old-fashioned journalistic style which clearly is not as accepted today as it once was. Too bad she was forced to retire -- I'm sure despite her comments, she is inherently a fine reporter.
