Remembering Sarah McClendon

White House reporter Sarah McClendon dies at 92. The feisty McClendon covered every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt, reporting her stories in the McClendon News Service, which she founded. Another veteran White House newswoman, Helen Thomas, calls McClendon "one of the greatest" newspaperwomen Washington ever saw. NPR's Lynn Neary talks to Thomas.
