Colbert Challenges Journalist Helen Thomas to Eat 50 Burgers

New, 6 comments

After venerable White House correspondent Helen Thomas was forced into retirement after making some racially-charged comments on camera, Stephen Colbert offered his idea of how to restore her legacy: "I want to give you a chance to be remembered for something more noble. So come on my show and eat 50 hamburgers. That way people won't think of you as an anti-Semitic reporter, but as the cool old lady with the Guinness World Record for the most beef consumed in an hour."
