On September 10, 2001, Elisabeth Bumiller took her spot as White House correspondent for the New York Times. The next day made history. The next nearly five years saw the Bush administration push executive powers and presidential secrecy to head-turning new frontiers.

Bumiller covered it all, from her vantage, in her way. Now she's off the White House beat and talking about reporting on the controversial presidency of George W. Bush — at a time when the White House press corps itself has come in for scathing criticism for unquestioning press room "stenography" of the administration line of the day.

Hear New York Times' Elisabeth Bumiller talk about covering the Bush White House.
