Former longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas has become a columnist for a free weekly paper in a Washington suburb, months after a controversy forced her from her previous post.

Thomas's first column about Social Security appeared Thursday in the Falls Church News-Press, a northern Virginia publication with circulation of about 30,000.

Thomas, 90, covered 10 presidents at the White House starting in 1960 and also had worked for UPI. She resigned in June from her latest role as a Hearst News Service columnist after saying Israelis should get "out of Palestine."

News-Press owner and editor Nicholas Benton said in a statement printed in his paper that he was proud Thomas was "relaunching her career in my newspaper."
