Shorter Helen Thomas...

"Goddamn jewsmedia! I'm not an anti-Semite!"

"I hit the third rail. You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive," Thomas told Ohio station WMRN-AM in a sometimes emotional 35-minute interview that aired Tuesday. It was recorded a week earlier by WMRN reporter Scott Spears at Thomas' Washington, D.C., condominium.

"They distorted my remarks, which they obviously have to do for their own propaganda purposes, otherwise people might wonder why they continue to take Palestinian land," said Thomas, a daughter of Lebanese immigrants who over the years did little to hide her pro-Arab views. There was no explanation of whom "they" referred to.
There really didn't need to be any explanation because by now it should be quite obvious. I thought it was beautiful, though, that the AP included that last sentence there. Left unspoken was, "...but from her ramblings it was quite obvious she thought it was the 'Jooooo-controlled media.'"
