WASHINGTON — Noted White House correspondent Helen Thomas, currently a Hearst Newspapers columnist, appeared last week on the American Federation of Government Employees’ (AFGE) radio program “Inside Government”. Thomas discussed her latest book titled "Watchdogs of Democracy? : The Waning Washington Press Corps and How It Has Failed the Public" on Friday, July 28 at 10 a.m. EDT on and 1050 AM in the Washington, D.C., area.

“Inside Government” is a one-hour weekly nationwide radio/Internet program dedicated to issues that impact all federal employees. In launching “Inside Government” AFGE becomes one of the first unions and the only federal workers’ union to have a national broadcast program on the air.

The program debuted June 30 and can be heard Fridays at 10:00 a.m. EDT nationally on demand (available anytime) at or 1050 AM in the Washington, D.C., area.

“Through Inside Government, we are able to bring the issues which impact all federal workers to a wide national audience on a regular basis,” said AFGE National President John Gage, who is the show’s creator and executive producer. “This show gives the real story on what is happening inside our federal agencies and the rights of federal employees.”
