Helen Thomas

Helen Thomas retired last week, she was a fixture at the White House as a female journalist who has covered presidents since 1960. Also the author of five books including “Thanks for the Memories Mr. President: Wit and Wisdom From the Front Row at the White House” and the 1999 memoir “Front Row at the White House: My Life and Times”. She served for 57 years as a correspondent from the Eisenhower to the Obama administration. She is best remembered for her “Thank You Mr. President” comment like she used in the movie “Dave”. Also she was the only member of the White House Press Corps to have her own seat in the White House Briefing Room. All other seats are assigned to media outlets, rather than specific people.
