No Such Thing as "Off the Record"

I wrote the following when the Helen Thomas bruhaha was just brewing.  Must've forgotten to actually post.  In any event, the  message is still the same: no such thing as off the record!

I often tell my clients, "There's no such thing as 'off the record' when talking to a journalist."  It's always interesting to see the tables turned.

In case you've been hiding under a rock, storied White House reporter and now columnist, Helen Thomas, was apparently unaware that recent comments regarding Jews and Israel might actually be recorded when she was asked at a recent White House event what she thought of Israel.

I think she's enjoyed her last birthday cupcake at the White House.
