But this posting isn't about Helen Thomas. It's about the hypocrisy of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
From today's Midweek Briefing:
Veteran UPI reporter and Hearst News columnist Helen Thomas, soon to turn 90, has "retired" after her incendiary remarks that Israeli Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to Germany, Poland and the United States. No word on Mrs. Thomas' start date with Hamas.I find this funny because w-a-a-a-a-a-y back in 2007 there was another columnist who:
- when asked whether the country would be better off if we all were Christian, answered "yea."
- when asked whether "we should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians, then" answered with another "yea."
- said that we (meaning Christians) "just want Jews to be perfected" and that a Christian is a "perfected" Jew.
