Helen Thomas' Anti Jewish Remark ends career of 'dean' of White House press

She is the only reporter to have had her name engraved on a chair in the White House press briefing room.

But after five decades of covering the White House, Helen Thomas, 89, retired under a cloud on Monday - caught on camera saying Israeli Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine".

The controversy - for which she has apologised - is a bitter end to a storied career.
