Helen Thomas Will Now Take Your Questions

Tonight I went over to Hearst, where Helen writes her weekly column, to talk. I told her ahead of time I had some questions and she sounded excited. “Sounds good,” she said. “I’ll see you at 5:30.”

What came of the conversation is the pilot episode for Your Fix with Helen Thomas. Enjoy and let me know what you think. I’ll be back next week for round two.

It’s past 5:00 in Helen’s newsroom. She had a busy few weeks. She greeted the new President with a controversial question, got blasted by Bill O’Reillyand then got flowers… It hasn’t been an average week for Helen, but then again, it never is. Now, in a completely new role, Helen Thomas will take your questions.

 

Helen’s last two columns:

Obama Follows Some of Bush’s Footsteps February 18, 2009

Obama Learns Limits of Bipartisan Overtures February 12, 2009

    Bill O’Reilly owes Ms. Thomas an apology, not for his comment on her questions, but for his attack on her personally. By making fun of the sound of her voice and, whether he wants to admit it or not, his comment on throwing water on her and she would melt, attacked everything about her. His comment about his mother being able to be among the White House press was even more insulting. But it all shows what little respect he has for women.
    What is unfortunate is the spokesperson for Women in the Media was not quick enough (at least not on what aired) to tackle the Palin question. Why should any women’s group defend someone who is harmful to our cause? On SNL her appearance was made fun of only in the extravagance of her clothes and jewelry. She should have been made fun of for that. Her manner of speech also was open to be mocked, you betchya! But her looks and sound of her voice were not mocked. Why would anyone defend Palin?
    Although Bill professes to be interested in our thoughts on this, try leaving a comment or sending an email to him. He wants you to pay for that privilege.

    Hi, I enjoyed this interview but had trouble hearing your words over the music. The theme music is nice, but would you consider playing it just at the beginning and end or lower during the interview? Thanks so much

    Rica…that was great! This better become a regular thing. I agree with Deborah, it was a little difficult to hear over the music, maybe if you turned it down so it was background music while talking, it would be easier to hear. Keep up the fantastic work!!!

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I’m sure which you merely write regarding this subject, may possibly possibly not be considered a taboo subject but typically persons are too small to communicate on such topics. To an additional. Cheers
