ABSTRACT
The article reports on how White House press corps reporter Helen Thomas was transformed from an institution to a muckracking crusader. In her new book,"Watchdogs of Democracy? The Waning Washington Press Corps and How It Failed the Public," Thomas argues that reporters were once more critical of the president. The article argues that the press corps has never been anything more than a transcription service for the press secretary and that Thomas causes more harm than good with her tirades.
