We feel the massive attack on Helen Thomas has been excessive, extreme, and inconsistent with values that we believe are fundamental to our society: freedom of thought, an independent press, simple fairness and respect. 
We don’t think it’s right to throw someone out after a lifetime of hard work.

We value the fact that Helen Thomas posed hard questions to politicians of both parties and feel that such journalism is essential to our country.

We hold diverse opinions on the content of Helen’s 26-second-long response to a stranger holding a camera in her face. All of us call for Helen Thomas to remain in journalism and retire when SHE chooses, not when her enemies decree it.
