The big news today was the death of celebrated journalist Helen Thomas. While Helen Thomas is largely known for breaking into a largely all-boys White House reporters' club in the 1960's, I remember her most fondly for her questioning of Bush 43's motives for invading Iraq:
Helen Thomas was also willing to lambaste the Obama administration's unquestioning support of Israeli policies:
Her comments about Israelis' presence in Palestine, considered extremely controversial, ultimately led to her firing. Personally, I think her comments were a bit extreme (her "Jews go home" bit was ill-advised), but the unquestioning support of continued settlement in the West Bank in the U.S. media is more pro-Likud than pro-Israel, and many Israelis question this policy.
At any rate, my fondest memory of Helen Thomas was her video with Stephen Colbert.
She was one of a kind, perspicacious, often prickly... I am pained to say that I think her like won't be seen again.
