Helen Thomas - No free speech for telling the truth
The most veteran reporter on the Washington Press Corps...
And consistently the most courageous.
She was fired for questioning Israel's ongoing abuse of Palestinians.
1. Fired from her job
2. The Washington Press Corps Association "leaders" want to take back her lifetime of awards.
As she describes here, she thought she was being asked a question about her personal views off the record. Did you know that in the United States veteran members of the press can have their careers destroyed for expressing a personal view off camera, if somebody has an iPhone handy?
