She was usually the first one to ask a question at a Presidential news conference. Helen Thomas, a White House correspondent who covered every president since Kennedy, died Saturday in her Washington, D.C. home. Helen Thomas was known for asking Presidents the tough questions. One White House press secretary called her questions “torture”. Helen Thomas truly was a pioneer for women in journalism. She was 92.

Helen covered 10 presidents over five decades, she was truly a journalism legend. Buzzfeed.com has gathered a nice collection of photos of Helen and our last 10 Presidents. The Associated Press has put together a nice look back at her career.
