Stephen Colbert took to the Report last night to offer Helen Thomas a chance to salvage her reputation and fade into obscurity for a less sensitivity-challenged feat. Colbert pleaded:

"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."
