Helen Gone

A handy primer on the "Helen Thomas problem" from The Washington Post's Dave Weigel. Yes, she has First Amendment right to say Israel should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Europe.  But there is no "right" to a prestigious slot in the White House press room and no "right" to be recognized by presidents or White House press secretaries during press conferences and gaggles.  

At 89, Thomas is well past her sell-by date.  Say goodnight, Helen.

UPDATE:  Helen says "Good night."
