No, not really; she’s the interview.
And we all know everybody reads Playboy for the interviews.
In Playboy Thomas repeats and defends her historically ignorant and deeply offensive charge that the Jews of Israel should go “home” to Poland and Germany where they came from. I guess her earlier expression of “regret” about her remarks has worn off.
The only interesting thing about the interview, really, is that this woman was a highly respected member of the White House press corps for so long.
She worked for the United Press International (UPI) for 57 years, first as a correspondent, and later as White House bureau chief. She was a columnist for Hearst Newspapers from 2000 to 2010, writing on national affairs and the White House. She covered every President of the United States from the last years of the Eisenhower administration until the second year of the Obama administration. She was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female member and president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, and the first female member of the Gridiron Club. She has written six books…
I think of a crazy aunt in the attic as harmless and isolated. Helen Thomas was neither.
