Synopsis

Journalist Helen Thomas has covered nine presidents and her venerable career has earned her the moniker 'The First Lady of the Press.' Directed by award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy, this documentary profiles the iconic journalist who has held a front-row seat at White House press conferences for more than 60 years. In her 80s and as sharp as ever, Thomas sits down for a one-on-one interview in which she reflects on her career, the distinct personalities and foibles of the presidents she's covered, as well as some of the scandals that have rocked the White House over the years.
