Letter: Examine Why Thomas Said It

Date: June 9, 2010

The Courant published a letter on June 9, 2010 from Pat Settembriono on Vernon on the "retirement" of Helen Thomas from Hearst after her anti-Semitic outburst was caught on video.

Inaccuracy: The letter falsely stated the reason for Thomas' outburst was: "the naval blockade of Gaza, the deadly interception of relief boats and Israel's tactics in preventing boats with much-needed aid from reaching an impoverished people."

Her outburst came well before the "Free Gaza" flotilla, which was not a relief boat and wasn't bringing much-needed aid.
