    Helen Thomas, JFK went on date By: Andrew Glass October 5, 2013 03:47 PM EDT Helen Thomas covered 10 presidents, from Eisenhower through Obama, in her time as a White House correspondent. She also went on a date with one of them, it emerged during a memorial service attended by about 500 people Saturday at the National Press Club for Thomas, who died on July 20 at age 92. As told by Suzanne Geha, Thomas’s niece, who presided, Thomas arrived in Washington in 1942, at age 22, shortly after graduating from Detroit’s Wayne State University. United Press (later UPI) hired...

    ..... But upon Helen Thomas’ death, TV show host Mika Brzezinski announced on MSNBC that Helen Thomas was her “role model.” CBS News decided to just change history and say that Helen Thomas said that the Jews should go back to “Europe.” CBS erased the word “Germany.” President Obama lauded Helen Thomas as a “true pioneer,” ignoring her vile anti-Jewish words that had her thrown out of his house. Newspaper obituaries trivialized her bigotry, characterizing it as a small controversy stemming from her feistiness, and newscasters’ dimples’ grinned, “Oh that Helen, ha-ha.” While every news source and the U.S. Justice...

    In the movie Animal House, the Deltas are put on trial for their antics. When offered a chance to defend themselves, the best argument the fraternity's president can come up with is, "But sir, Delta Tau Chi has a long tradition of existence to its members and to the community at large." The line came to mind as I read through the obituaries for Helen Thomas, the longtime White House correspondent for UPI and, for a decade, a left-wing columnist for the Hearst newspapers. Thomas did help break down the barriers to women in the D.C. press corps. "Helen Thomas...

    An eerie silence descended on American journalism's attic Saturday morning. Elsewhere the house was loud with cries of mourning for 92-year-old Helen Thomas and of celebration for her life. This columnist was anything but an admirer of Thomas, and normally we'd give the subject a rest out of respect for the recently departed. But the over-the-top encomiums demand a critical examination because they exemplify a moral and intellectual rot within the journalistic profession

    (CNSNews.com) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) offered condolences on the death of Helen Thomas, saying she will be "fondly remembered by the American Muslim community." At a White House celebration for American Jewish Heritage Month, Thomas was asked by RabbiLive.com if she had any “comments on Israel.” “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine," Thomas said. "Remember, these people are occupied, and it’s their land.” Thomas then suggested that Jewish people "go home" to “Poland, Germany,” “and America, and everywhere else.”

    It might not be the way most high-profile journalists would like to be remembered. Not long after the passing of veteran American journalist Helen Thomas yesterday, aged 92, Hamas’ very own “military wing”, the Izzedeene al-Qassam Brigades, posted on its website a heartfelt eulogy. The post—highlighted by the Elder of Zion blog—was entitled: “Rest in Peace Helen Thomas. We respect you for taking a stand.” …

    Helen Thomas, whose career covering the White House dated back to the Kennedy administration, died on Saturday at the age of 92, the Gridiron Club announced in an email to members on Saturday. Thomas was the the first woman to join the White House Correspondents' Association, and the first woman to serve as its president. She was also the first female member of the Gridiron Club, Washington's historic press group. Present at the press briefings of ten consecutive presidential administrations, Thomas's career in journalism ended in 2010 after controversial remarks she made about Israeli Jews were caught on camera.

    The White House press corps was so worried about its reputation when veteran reporter Helen Thomas ranted against Jews in 2010 that it quickly moved to discredit her journalistic creds and personally attacked her as crazy in a bid to save itself, according to a new journalism school analysis. Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly details the efforts by the press corps to shove Thomas out of their club after she told a New York rabbi in a widely distributed video that Israel should "get the hell out of Palestine," and that Jews should "go home" to "Poland, Germany ... and...

    To prove that the U.S news media “distort the truth and mislead the public opinion to curry favor with power,” a North Korean newspaper used Helen Thomas’s 2010 retirement as an example. Only problem is that Thomas (pictured right) was once a female columnist for Hearst Newspapers, not a man.

    A group of about 25 journalists and friends got together in the National Press Club to celebrate the life and birthday of ground breaking journalist Helen Thomas. We met in the McLendon Room, which was appropriate. When I came into the White House press corps, in l968, Helen and Sarah McClendon were the senior correspondents. Helen's mind and voice are as sharp as ever, but her body is more delicate (that happens to many of us). Our one rule of the get together was -- no politics! We have enough of that the rest of the time. In addition, none...

    She may have questioned every president from Kennedy through Obama, but there is probably nothing that excited her more than to receive a prize from PA President Mahmoud Abbas and the PLO. J-Post: Longtime White House reporter Helen Thomas received a prize in journalism from a representative of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Thomas, 91, who was forced into retirement two years ago after making controversial remarks about Jews and Israel, was recognized for her journalism career and commitment to the Palestinian cause. Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Executive Committee of the PLO, presented Thomas with the award on...

The Lebanese-American reporter was honored by the Palestinian Authority on Sunday for her, “long career in the field of journalism, during which she defended the Palestinian position every step of the way.” Perhaps the most famous member of the White House press corps, Thomas was forced to resign in 2010 after she said to a reporter on camera regarding the Jews in Israel,...

    Journalist Helen Thomas put in a request in February that she have her own table at this year‘s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Unfortunately for her, she was denied by the White House Correspondents’ Association, which Thomas once presided over. “I would appreciate — particularly this year as we celebrate the 50 year anniversary of women being admitted to the WHCA dinner — to share this celebration with my family and close friends one last time,” she wrote in a letter to the WHCA board.

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney finally released his tax returns last week, revealing that less than 14 percent in federal taxes was paid, of his more than $20 million income earned last year. Once again, the question Warren Buffett first asked this past summer is being raised: Why do the super wealthy in this country pay less in taxes than the working class? How do people making millions of dollars a year pay roughly 15 percent in taxes, while someone with a salary of $100,000 per year will pay as much as 28 percent in taxes? This is because of...
