Compassionately Speaking

She's an icon of the liberal media, and Helen Thomas still delights and horrifies with her inability to keep her snarly perspective to herself. Here's a career topper!

Helen Thomas is as fair and open minded as she is good looking. The most senior (she turns 90 this summer) of White-House correspondents has given up being a real reporter and instead spends her time spewing venom at America’s war on terror and/or anything Israel does.
The woman is a delight. Here she is asking Robert Gibbs about the Flotilla incident earlier this week.
It would be nice if the rest of the media elite would start spewing their personal perspectives rather than keeping them hidden for 'professional' reasons.
