Danny Schechter, executive editor of MediaChannel.org, discusses his new article that revisits journalist Helen Thomas’s career-ending Israel gaffe; how selective quotation from the “gotcha” clip turned Thomas’s poorly phrased response into “proof” of her anti-Semitism; the media hit pieces, gloating about Thomas’s exile, that make clear there is little tolerance in Washington for Israel-critics; and Schechter’s firsthand account – while working for ABC News in 1982 – of an Israeli campaign to stop the airing of an investigative news story about the West Bank.
