The Drudge Report has a story today about how Helen Thomas, a longtime White House reporter, has threatened to kill herself if VP Cheney runs for president. She is quoted in the Hill newspapers as saying how bad she thought Cheney was. Wow. I'm shocked and disappointed.
I remember the high regard I had for Ms. Thomas when I was in journalism school in the sixties. She was the paragon of professionalsim. One of the tenets of good journalism is to never show your bias and never let your bias affect your coverage of a story.
I believe that she even had a niece or other close relative who was a j-school student at MSU.
Somebody needs to show some compassion to Helen Thomas and tell her its time to quit. She's seen her best days and they were long ago.
