At this point everybody realizes that Helen Thomas is a crazy old person who makes stupid anti-Jewish remarks, so it would seem that the only natural thing to do would be to put her on Joy Behar’s moderately successful television show, so she could go ahead and say more stupid, anti-Jewish things.
Thomas told Behar that once World War II ended, the Jews “didn’t have to go anywhere really, because they weren’t being persecuted anymore. But they were taking other people’s land.” She also pointed out that she’d forgotten to mention that the Jews should go back to Russia (along with Poland and Germany) instead of making Israel their homeland.
Since it’s already established that Thomas is losing what little grip on reality she may have had as she gets older (and older, and older…), we should ask what was really the point of even having the 90-year-old reporter–one whose opinions have been greatly marginalized since her apparently self-imposed retirement—on Behar’s show in the first place? It almost seems like a sad grab at attention by a show that hardly anybody cares about, on a network that is constantly failing and falling behind the other major news networks.
With that said, Helen Thomas is an icon that broke down gender walls that were put up in front of women journalists. Helen Thomas is also a person who has never held back from asking tough questions. But Helen Thomas is also a crazy old person who shouldn’t be given the chance to spew her idiotic rants, and CNN is guilty by association for letting her.
