Schieffer named Whitman grad speaker
Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda has arranged for a new speaker to replace Helen Thomas for its graduation exercises next Monday: Bob Schieffer, the veteran CBS television journalist.
Whitman Principal Alan Goodwin planned to make the announcement Tuesday morning in an email to parents. Thomas, who covered the White House for decades as a correspondent and columnist, withdrew from the speaking engagement Sunday night, by mutual agreement with the school, when controversy emerged over her recent remarks about Israel.
