Tributes: Helen Thomas

Friday, July 26, 2013

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.

To the woman who said that the Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Europe, I hope she gets what she deserves wherever the hell she is right now.
