Over at Big Journalism, Jeff Dunetz compares Helen Thomas to Pat Buchanan and Al Sharpton. I have been tough on both men over the years. But come on. Neither Buchanan nor Sharpton were ever White House reporters. They are not professionally credentialed as such. Helen Thomas spent most of her career claiming that she was an objective reporter. This was always palpable nonsense.
I understand that Dunetz wants to talk about anti-Semitism, and that’s fine. But he’s changing the subject.
