Helen Thomas Announces Retirement

TigerHawk compares Helen Thomas to Al Campanis, suggesting the former's comments were even more odious. But like Campanis after Ted Koppel's interview, she's on the way out now, "Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas retires following controversial remarks."

Check also Ed Morrissey, "
White House blasts absent Thomas in today's briefing‎."

Ed's got some of the reactions, so we'll see how folks spin this ...

Why in the hell did it take 50 years to rid ourselves of this old woman. God it will be great not seeing her on the front row and hearing those shrill comments instead of probing questions.

I've heard of your blog, but believe this is my first visit. like what I see and will be linking to you at TOTUS. I see many friends on your links.
