(wium) - The panelists talk about longtime journalist Helen Thomas, who abruptly retired Monday after making controversial remarks about Israelis.

In a video recorded May 27, Thomas says Israelis should "get the hell out of Palestine." She suggested they should go to Germany, Poland or the US. She has since apologized for the comments, which quickly made their way across the Internet.

The 89-year Thomas was the head of the White House press corps. She was well known for her confrontational and tough questioning.

During an appearance at Western Illinois University a couple years ago, Thomas showed she still possessed a passion for journalism. That passion and her experience had made her somewhat untouchable - administrations were unable to push her around.
