    FILE - In this Feb. 25, 2009, file photo veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas listens as White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs answers her question during his daily press briefing in Washington. Thomas, the irrepressible White House correspondent who used her center, front row seat of history to grill 10 presidents, died Saturday, July 20, 2013, at the age of 92. She pushed open the doors for women at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner, when at her urging, President John F. Kennedy refused to attend the 1962 dinner unless it was open to women for the first time. Thomas fought, too, for a more open presidency, resisting all moves by a succession of administrations to restrict press access. "People will never know how hard it is to get information," she told an interviewer, "especially if it's locked up behind official doors where, if politicians had their way, they'd stamp TOP SECRET on the color of the walls."
