Do you remember a scandalous YouTube video of uploaded in 2010: a brief interview with Helen Thomas for American Jewish Heritage Celebration Day? As she was leaving the White House via the North Lawn driveway, she replied "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine" and "Remember these people are occupied and it's their land. It's not German, it's not Poland..." When asked where Israeli Jews should go, she replied they could "go home" to Poland or Germany or "America and everywhere else. It could be a comment slipped out her mouth after the long and tedious American War on Terror in Iraq, which turned out to be a hoax based on wrong information and, for her, the US-Israel relationship did not help end the war. Born in Winchester, Kentucky as an immigrant from Tripoli (Syria, at the time), Helen Thomas was a legendary White House reporter. As the first female member of the White House press corps and the UPI's first female white house bureau manager, her career covering the WH dates back to the Kennedy administration. Nevertheless her career in journalism ended abruptly as these controversial remarks to a Rabbi were caught on camera. However, it is important to note that this smudge on her career is not an issue of personal views. It's the fact that it went against her duty as an unbiased, fair reporter. I think she underestimated the power of social media at the time.
