President & Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Helen Thomas

Statement by President and Secretary Clinton on the passing of Helen Thomas

Jul 20, 2013 | President Clinton and Secretary Clinton | New York, NY  | Statement
Hillary and I were saddened to hear of Helen Thomas' passing today. Helen was a pioneering journalist who, while adding more than her share of cracks to the glass ceiling, never failed to bring intensity and tenacity to her White House beat. Throughout her career she covered the issues and events that shaped the course of our world with perseverance and a tough-minded dedication. Her work was extraordinary because of her intelligence, her lively spirit and great sense of humor, and most importantly her commitment to the role of a strong press in a healthy democracy.
