Journos remember reporter Helen Thomas, dead at 92

Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas died Saturday at the age of 92 after a long illness.

Thomas was the first female member of the Gridiron Club and covered 10 consecutive presidential administrations. Her long career screeched to a halt after she suggested Jews should go back to Poland or Germany.

Fellow journos remembered their colleague on Twitter, focusing on her decades of reporting rather than the anti-Semitism that shaped many of her questions at the White House.
