Doubting Thomas silenced

Helen Thomas is a giant in the field of journalism -- a groundbreaking woman and a thorn in the side of those in power for five decades. Thomas, who will be 90 years old this summer, was forced to retire today after insensitive remarks about the Middle East. Her legacy is much bigger than this last misstep, and tonight -- without Thomas sitting in the front row of the White House press room -- our democracy is that much weaker.
