    Ted Rall: First they came for the cranky White House columnist

    June 10, 2010

    On June 7, the professional life of Helen Thomas came to an end. The acid-tongued "dean" of the White House press corps since the Kennedy administration got fired by her newspaper syndicate, dumped by her speakers' bureau, and disinvited by a Bethesda high school that had asked her to address its commencement ceremonies. The White House Correspondents Association condemned her. President Barack Obama took time out from not doing anything about unemployment or the Gulf oil spill to weigh in. Chastened, reviled and subjected to the kind of national opprobrium normally reserved for international terrorists and blind baseball umpires, Thomas apologized and announced her retirement. All in one day. — Ted Rall on Helen Thomas's comments about Israel
