Breaking: Helen Thomas to retire, effective immediately

Politico and several other news outlets are reporting that Helen Thomas is retiring, effective immediately. Her retirement comes in response to the universal outcry over outrageous remarks that Thomas, a longtime opinion journalist allowed to be a part of the WH press corps, made last month advocating that Jews “go back to Poland and Germany.”

The White House Correspondents’ Association had met earlier today to discuss how to handle the situation, with a ruling expected Thursday, but of course the issue becomes moot with her retirement.

Wonder how long it will take before news of a book deal w/ Thomas is announced, where she will write at length about her “persecution” over this issue?
