Matrix Award Winner Helen Thomas Touts Book
Watchdogs of Democracy?: The Waning Washington Press Corps and How It Has Failed the Public
(release, June 2007)
Helen Thomas, AWC's 2007 International Matrix Award winner, has been reporting the news, covering nine presidents. As the most recognized member of the Washington press corps, Thomas assesses the current coverage of the White House, declaring that journalists are "the watchdogs of democracy," and, further, that "without an informed people, there can be no democracy," especially with the deteriorating state of journalistic ethics, turning Washington reporters into lapdogs rather than watchdogs.
