(CNN) - Longtime White House journalist Helen Thomas has died at age 92, sources told CNN Saturday.
Thomas covered 10 presidents over nearly half a century, and became a legend in the industry.
Her passing is a great loss to the Fourth Estate. We need more than cheerleaders and Helen certainly was not one of those.
RIP "First Lady of the Press" Helen Thomas.
The only journalist in the White House Press Crps with gumption. Never shying away from seeking the truth and putting blunt questions. Never stuck to the 'script' and put many a Presidents at discomfort.
We need more like her.
