One of the keynote speakers at the NYC College Media Convention was former White House correspondent Helen Thomas, 90, who was condemned by some (including President Obama) for comments she made during this exchange last spring.
At the convention, Thomas stood by her remarks on Israel, repeatedly saying, “Stop taking what doesn’t belong to you.”
One student, an Israeli attending the University of Massachusetts in Boston, asked Thomas where she should go if the Jews should leave Israel. Thomas’ reply: “Come to America.”
