Thank You Mr. President: Helen Thomas at the White House

Sunday, February 8th, 2:00 PM

Darien Library, Auditorium

A legend in political reporting, Helen Thomas covered every President since JFK. This documentary traces her journey from the daughter of illiterate immigrants to her status as a fearless journalist. After six decades with the White House Press Corps, she notes “I think that Presidents deserve to be questioned, perhaps irreverently, to bring them down a size. If we don’t ask the questions, then they won’t get asked.” Filled with historical footage and personal memories, this film provides a fascinating view of the White House PR process.
