White House Reporter Helen Thomas Dies at 92

Helen Thomas

White House reporter Helen Thomas, who covered every President from John F. Kennedy to Barack Obama, has died, CNN reports. She was 92.

The trailblazing journalist died in her Washington apartment Saturday morning after a long illness, according to The Gridiron Club and Foundation, a journalistic organization for which Thomas once served as president.

Born in Winchester, Ky., she joined United Press in 1943 and began covering president-elect Kennedy in 1960.  She became the official UPI White House correspondent in January 1961. She was known for sitting in an assigned seat on the front row in the briefing room, asking tough, pointed questions and always ending every press conference by saying, "Thank you, Mr. President."

Celebrities React to Landmark Same-Sex Marriage Decisions

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kristen Bell, Kevin Bacon

The U.S. Supreme Court issued two landmark rulings related to the issue of same-sex marriage Wednesday. First, the court ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional — paving the way for legally married same-sex couples to receive the same federal benefits as straight married couples. Second, the Court dismissed an appeal against California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state — meaning that same-sex marriage can resume in California.

Celebrities took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the rulings. Here are some of their reactions:

Supreme Court Strikes Down Defense of Marriage Act

Supreme Court Gay Marriage

The Supreme Court has ruled that a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, The New York Times reports.

In a 5-4 vote Wednesday morning, the court struck down a portion of the 1996 law that previously denied federal benefits to married same-sex couples. "The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity," Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote. "By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than other, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment."
