Ignorant Old Crank "Retires"

This just in via wireupdate.com:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (BNO NEWS) — Hearst Newspapers White House reporter Helen Thomas on Monday announced she will retire after her controversial anti-Israel remarks caused an outrage.
She should have been put out to pasture long ago, as Jonah Goldberg relates:
She's been full-spectrum awful. I've known a few people who knew her 40 years ago, and she was slimy then too. One small example can be found in James Rosen's excellent book on John Mitchell, The Strong Man. Mitchell's wife Martha was a mentally unstable alcoholic who would call reporters to vent sad, paranoid, fact-free theories and diatribes. At first, many reporters were eager to hear her out, but over time it became obvious that Martha Mitchell was not well and it was cruel to exploit her. Obvious, that is, to nearly everyone but Helen Thomas who continued to milk Martha Mitchell for damning quotes and nonsense.
Fascinating: PJ Media: The Washington Post Hides The Decline, in which the MSM is once again, as in the Van Jones fiasco, caught having to report on the firing of a left wing idiot (and really, is there any other kind?) after attempting to bury the original transgression.

Anyway, thanks to Helen Thomas for lifting the veil on the left's anti-Semitism. Now off with the old bigot.
