JFK and Helen, Sittin’ in a Tree October 6, 2013Posted by geoff in News.
Trying to wrap my head around this one:
Helen Thomas covered 10 presidents, from Eisenhower through Obama, in her time as a White House correspondent. She also went on a date with one of them…
While working for UP, she went on a date with John F. Kennedy, then a young Democratic congressman from Massachusetts, whom she subsequently covered in the White House.
“How did it go?” her friend asked her.
“He was too fresh,” Helen reportedly replied.
In the spirit of historical inquiry, I’ve found a photo of Helen Thomas in her early years:
|Helen as a fresh young thing, happily abandoning principles of journalistic integrity by dating politicians.||JFK tortured by memories of his youthful indiscretions.|
I’m still not seeing it.
