Editor reviews

Few have rankled presidents and politicians for as long and as effectively as the late Helen Thomas. For 60 years, Helen Thomas covered the White House with sharp questioning, rarely if ever holding anything back, doing her best to keep presidents accountable for their actions. In this production from the 92nd Street Y, the progressive journalist and author Amy Goodman sits down with Thomas for a night of hilarious and intimate conversation. Listen along as the two powerful journalists look back on the illustrious career of one of the longest tenured members of the White House press corps.

All About Amy

Media bias, encouraged by Amy Goodman, ruined an otherwise exceptional interview of Helen Thomas. Amy spent most of the interview spewing hatred of Bush, Cheney, Eisenhower, Kissinger, and any other Republican instead of allowing Helen to be the focus of the story. Extremely bad taste and selfish on Goodman's part. Very disappointed in this Audible presentation.
