    She did some fine reporting as a stenographer.

    Old news.

    And what does Football_Bat's post mean?

    Andrew Breitbart ain't exactly a credible source for much of anything...especially after his ACORN-pimp lie-fest.

    I'd love to see the rest of the tape Breitbart and his idiot minions probably edited out of this clip.

    Would you consider Helen Thomas "credible?"

    Helen Thomas issued the following statement today: “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”

    She's got a ton of miles on her, and this was more than regrettable . . . but compared to a cheap hustler like Breitbart? No contest.

    What does Breitbart have to do with it?

    Hers are the thoughts of a typical liberal. No surprise.

    He had the gall to actually post a video of what she said. And if it was somehow taken out of context, as Fishack seems to think. Ms. Thomas wouldn't have issued her follow-up statement.

    And she's not claiming her comments were taken out of context.

    She's saying that her own words do not reflect her beliefs. Sure.

    She just said in public what she believes and what she's probably said hundreds of times to her friends, who had no objections.

    I haven't looked at the video. But, not specifically related to Thomas, note that it's possible to object to a lot of what Israel does without being anti-Semitic.
