(JTA) -- The Society of Professional Journalists retired a lifetime achievement award named for Helen Thomas.
The SPJ board on Jan. 14 accepted the recommendation issued by its executive committee on Jan. 8, based on anti-Zionist remarks made by long-time journalist Thomas.
“While we support Helen Thomas’ right to speak her opinion, we condemn her statements in December as offensive and inappropriate,” the executive committee said at the time.
