Lazio: Fire White House reporter Helen Thomas

A new call to fire a veteran White House reporter after she made controversial remarks.

Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio says it is time for Helen Thomas to go.

Thomas outraged many after telling a rabbi from Stony Brook that quote "Israelis should get the hell out of Palestine."

In the taped interview, Thomas urged Jews to go home to Germany, Poland or the U.S.

Lazio wants Hearst Newspapers where Thomas writes a column to do what he calls "the right thing."
