Bernard Goldberg Kicks Helen Thomas When She's Down

Reported by Ellen - June 8, 2010 -

In a discussion with Bill O'Reilly.last night (6/7/10) about 89 year-old Helen Thomas' retirement, Bernie Goldberg used the occasion first to compare Thomas to Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He then used her to attack some favorite Fox News scapegoats - liberals and universities - by saying that Thomas' recent, offensive comments on Israel are what is "said on a regular basis at our most elite universities by left-wing intellectuals all the time." Then, after taking such a supposedly principled stand, Goldberg took a swipe at Jews by saying he did not want a Jewish reporter covering Israel because "they will bend over backwards to not take the Israeli side." Stay classy, Bernie.
