Pull Her Credentials

If you didn't catch Special Report with Brit Hume on Fox News Channel today, you missed perhaps the most despicable performance by a White House correspondent. Helen Thomas, the dean of the White House press corps, prefaced her question with the usual far-Left distortions, and then continuously attempted to interrupt the President as he attempted to respond.

Behavior like this takes her from the realm of even the fig leaf of being a reporter, into the realm of commentator, and the White House should respond accordingly by pulling her credentials. She certainly has the right to her opinions and views, however ill-informed, but she doesn't possess the right to berate the President of the United States.

At least David Gregory had the excuse that he was dealing with a press flak.

Almost missed your comment there, Marty. I considered deleting permanently Willis' deleted comments (which would have erased all evidence of them) but he so elegantly proved my point that I thought it best to leave them.

Isn't it funny that some people accuse ME of having "unhealthy ... obsession[s]."

Ah, the last refuge of a coward: personal attack.

As I said in another thread, when you can act like an adult, your posts will not be deleted.

I kind of like letting people like Helen Thomas stay around, she is a good foil for the sanity of our current President.

Just like I like when Russ Feingold and his buddies try to make a case for censure. It shows the true agenda of the Democrats.
