Legendary White House Correspondent Helen Thomas, 92, died today. Ms.Thomas covered every U.S. president since John F. Kennedy and was the first women president of the White House Correspondents Association. Her final job was as a weekly columnist for the Falls Church News-Press. She came out of a retirement induced by a cascade of criticism from her journalistic colleagues for off-hand comments she was recorded making that were taken out of context in June 2010. She contributed weekly columns for the News-Press from January 2011 to January 2012.
