Scribner. Paperback. 2000-05-03. Fair. Binding tight with no creases. Cover shows minor edge wear. Pages clean and unmarked with no folds or tears. Born in 1920, Helen Thomas was one of United Press International's very few female journalists for years. She promoted herself to UPI's White House Pr ess Corps in 1960 ("I just started showing up every day") and has reported on eight administrations. Her episodic, old-fashioned autobiography contain s anecdotes about each president, their first ladies, and their staff. Her stories are often funny, and she doesn't mind when the joke's on her: "Isn' t there a war somewhere we can send her to?" Colin Powell inquired after be ing buttonholed at a party; President Carter's mother said the greatest les son she learned in 80 years was, "Never to open my mouth around Helen Thoma s." She's also fair: even the press secretaries get balanced treatment, tho ugh Thomas criticizes the White House's growing efforts to "manage" the new s. (Her most affectionate political portrait is of the unmanageable Waterga te wife Martha Mitchell.) Thomas pays loving tribute to her parents, hardwo rking, religious Syrian immigrants, and to her late husband, Associated Pre ss reporter Doug Cornell, but she keeps the focus on the people and public events she covered. Scrupulously impartial when reporting the news, she fee ls free here to be bluntly opinionated, especially in her unrepentant advoc acy of the media's responsibility to ask uncomfortable questions, even when the public condemns them as intrusive. --Wendy Smith --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Publishers Weekly The veteran Washington reporte ., Scribner, 2000-05-03
