Tributes: Helen Thomas

Helen Thomas was the first woman to become a chief White House correspondent for a wire service, and the first to not only join, but lead the White House Correspondents’ Association, where she covered every president from Kennedy to Obama with intensity, tenacity, and humor (when called for!).  She died at the age of 92.  And you can hear Leonard’s interview with her from May 1999.
