Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas announced her retirement Monday, just days after she made controversial remarks about Israel and Palestine.

Thomas, 89, who covered the White House for decades, made her comments during an interview that later was posted online.

Thomas wrote for United Press International for more than a half-century and later for Hearst newspapers, covering every president from John F. Kennedy to Barack Obama.
