Thomas died Saturday morning at her Washington apartment

Helen Thomas
White House Press Corps Reporter: 1920 - 2013

Quote:"I don't think a tough question is disrespectful. I say. ´Mr. President...´ I say, ´Thank you.´ What else do you want? The presidential news conference is the only forum in our society where a president can be questioned. If he's not questioned, he can rule by edict; by government order. He can be a monarch. He can be a dictator, and who is to find out? No. He should be questioned and he should always be able to willingly reply and answer to all questions because these aren't our questions. They're the people's questions."

Long-time White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who covered every president from Eisenhower to Obama, has died at age 92, according to The Gridiron Club & Foundation.

Gridiron Club's Carl Leubsdorf announced in an email: "Former Gridiron Club president Helen Thomas, our first female member, died Saturday morning at her Washington apartment after a long illness. She would have been 93 next month."

Thomas spent 57 years at United Press International before spending her last decade in journalism as a columnist for Heart Newspapers.

As a White House correspondent Thomas covered the press briefings of ten consecutive presidential administrations.

Thomas was forced to retire in 2010 when she was asked for comments on Israel, she replied: "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine."
RIP. An idol, I wan't lie.

To say that she will be missed doesn't begin to cover it.

Feeling very sad over here.
The best moment of the GW Bush presidency. Segment featuring Helen toward the end of the video. This was after Helen was banned from asking questions by the Bush neocons.

at some point you just have to leave the politics alone.. and consider not causing undue stress to a 90 year old lady.

This right wing Rabbi and his accomplices set out to `get`the ninety year old dean of white house journalism via ambush and they succeeded. Of course she had no idea she was being filmed, and the Jews fucking hate the Arabs even more than they fucking hate the Europeans and they fucking hate everybody else. Gotcha!!!

Congratulations ya fucking lowlifes!
What a sneaky, dirty, underhanded, filthy piece of shit rabbi.
