Washington, Jul 21: Helen Thomas, a pioneer for women in journalism who used her seat in the front row of history to grill nine U.S. presidents and refused to keep her strong opinions to herself, died on Saturday. She was 92.





Thomas died surrounded by family and friends at her Washington apartment on Saturday, the family said in a statement.

A friend, Muriel Dobbin, told The Associated Press that Thomas had been ill for a long time, and in and out of the hospital before coming home on Thursday.

The longtime White House correspondent made her name as a bulldog for United Press International in the great wire-service rivalries of old. She was the only reporter with her name inscribed on a chair in the White House briefing room.
