Brian Williams And Helen Thomas
How ironic that Brian Williams would report that Helen Thomas resigned from her job at Hearst Newspapers because of insensitive comments she made about Israel. Last summer, while acting as emcee of the Nantucket Film Festival, Brian made some inappropriate Jewish jokes ("Welcome to the Nantucket Film Festival--where Jews come to be honored. Nantucket is actually a Yiddish word meaning where the WASPS live.") but he did not resign (nor was he asked to do so). Interesting. I guess there are different standards for columnists and anchors.
