Description

Helen Thomas served for 57 years as a correspondent and White House bureau chief for United Press International. She began her long career as a "copy girl" on the now-defunct Washington Daily News, and, in 1943, joined United Press International writing radio news. In November, 1960, Thomas began covering President-elect John F. Kennedy, following him to the White House in January, 1961, as a member of the UPI team. Thomas was the only woman print journalist traveling with President Richard Nixon during his trip to China in 1972, and has since traveled around the world several times covering Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush. Now, as a columnist and no longer operating as an objective reporter, Thomas holds little back in her opinions about the Bush administration's policies, and asks "where is the outrage"?
