I wonder if she ever met Helen Thomas, a fine American journalist who was feared and treated with great respect, even by presidents.
Let me tell you a little about Clare Hollingworth. This photo from The Guardian.
In 1939 she was helping refugees on the German Polish border. She was recalled to London and then hired by the London Daily Telegraph and sent back to the Polish border city of Katowice as a reporter. She borrowed a diplomat's car and took a little investigative trip into Germany by simply driving across the closed border. She noticed a hessian barrier which the wind caught and blew aside and she was able to see in the valley below hundreds of German tanks lined up and ready to invade Poland. The consul-general did not initially believe her when he was told. She phoned through her story back to the Tele in London while the consul-general contacted the Foreign Office. Three days after the story headlined, '1000 tanks massed on the Polish border', Germany invaded Poland and so began WWII.
She reported from various trouble spots after the war, Poland, Germany, Algeria, Egypt, Beirut, India, Israel, China, Vietnam, Romania, Greece and Yemen. She exposed Kim Philby as being the third man in the English spy triumvirate. She was the Daily Tele's first resident correspondent in China in Mao's time and watched the Tiananmen Square massacre from her hotel window.
She finally stopped reporting when she was in her 90s and could be found daily at her own table in the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents' Club where she would imperiously knock her walking stick on the floor when she wanted service. She was truly a remarkable journalist and woman, and I had never heard of her.
