But Helen Thomas proved her apology was utterly worthless. Speaking in Dearborn, Thomas told the Detroit Free Press:
The Free Press asked her about her comments, which critics have said were anti-Israel.
"I paid the price for that," said Thomas, a longtime White House correspondent. "But it was worth it, to speak the truth."
Thomas also said in a speech that day:
"We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There's no question about that. Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where there mouth is . . . We're being pushed into a wrong direction in every way."
