Helen Thomas Dies at 92

It's a sad day for the press. Legendary journalist Helen Thomas, the first female president of the White House Correspondents' Association, has died at 92. Thomas was a fixture in the front row of White House press conferences and covered 10 presidents in her decades-long career. She began covering the White House in 1961 and did not retire until 2010, becoming the longest-serving White House journalist in the process. Although she retired amid a flood of controversy over remarks on Israel, Thomas remains a legend.
