All presidents rail against the press. It goes with the turf.
Hearst newspaper column, (15 October 2003).
This is the worst president ever. He is the worst president in all of American history.Helen Thomas
...it took a lot of chutzpah on the part of a lot of newspaper women who came here in the twenties, thirties, forties, and fifties to break down the barriers against women reporters. And we couldn’t even become members of the National Press Corps until 1971 — that’s pretty late in the game. We got the vote, which we should’ve been born with, in 1920. Everything we’ve had to struggle for — it’s ridiculous.Helen Thomas
We've got to break through the wall of secrecy. It's America's fate.Helen Thomas
Every President hates the Press. Every president thinks that all information that comes to the White House is their private preserve after they all promise an open administration on the campaign trail, but some are even more secretive than others. Some want to lock down everything.Helen Thomas
You don't spread democracy through the barrel of a gun.Helen Thomas
I'm a liberal, I was born a liberal, and I will be a liberal till the day I die.Helen Thomas
I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.Helen Thomas
