She may have been born in Kentucky, but she surely does not think like a Kentuckian. Helen should have retired some 20 years ago while she still had some credibility.

Why is it that if you think Palestine should belong to the Palestinian people, you are automatically labeled a racist?Somewhere.....Oh yeah the Bible, I seem to remember it being called Palestine.God forbid you should look at the middle east situation from another point of view.Sure, some of what she said was silly but she was just giving her opinion.

agreed, but when you are a member of the media it does help to know what racist or antisemetic things are good to blurt out, opinion or not. reporting isn't done on opinion, just facts and circumstances.

She is 90...give her a break. God forbid someone say something they didnt mean or really didnt think about. She has had a long career and it is sad that she had to retire because of one stupid comment.

There isnt one person alive that hasnt said something they regret, at one time or another in life. Does this mean they should be shamed or forced into retirement for it?

She apologized!!!!!!!! She's 90!!!!!!!!!! Give her some slack!!!!!!

I wish someone would give Keith,Rachel,Chris,and the rest of the gang over at NBC-MSNBC The memo as far as keeping their opinion out of the broadcast,if they actually done that you would sit and stare at a blank screen.They are absolutely ruining the, once proud Network.I know it's not technically news, but still.
