You can call or e-mail Hearst corporate communications chief Paul Luthringer and tell him that Hearst needs to get rid of Helen Thomas. Fire her.
Call Paul Luthringer at 212-649-2540 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tell him that Helen Thomas must go.
Here's my e-mail to Luthringer:
Dear Mr. Luthringer:
The Hearst Corporation must directly and bluntly address the Helen Thomas imbroglio.
As a lifelong public relations practitioner, I understand that you have a responsibility to protect the reputation of a valued American brand. So, it makes sense that Hearst would issue a statement separating itself from Thomas' outrageously bigoted remarks.
But that's not enough. And neither is Thomas' apology.
Thomas has now already admitted she "crossed the line." Indeed she did. And her actions warrant dismissal.
It behooves the Hearst Corporation to fire Helen Thomas now. That is the right thing to do.
Hearst is her employer. And so long as that is the case, Hearst will be tainted with and by this mess. You need to make a complete break with Helen Thomas.
You need to do it not just for the reputation of the corporation but because it is the right thing to do.
Don't delay. Do it now.
