Helen Thomas “Retires” from Hearst Newspapers

Just breaking from Hearst Newspapers.

HELEN THOMAS ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2010 – Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately.

Her decision came after her controversial comments about Israel and the Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the Internet.

Thomas later issued a statement: “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.’’

Thomas will mark her 90th birthday on Aug. 4.

Let’s just clarify, Thomas’ comments were not about “the Israelis and the Palestinians,” they were about Jews.  Her comment was blatantly ugly and blatantly anti-Semitic.

Good riddance to something like that.
