White House Correspondent Ken Walsh on "Ultimate Insiders"

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

A picture tells a thousand words.  If that's the case President Obama's Chief White House Photographer told about two million a day. 

Pete Souza took around two thousand photos every workday covering the 44th president. Longtime White House Correspondent Ken Walsh's new book highlights Souza and the others who held his title in "Ultimate Insiders: White House Photographers and How They Shape History."He sat down with us recently before his presentation at the Franklin D. RooseveltLibrary and Museum in Hyde Park. From Lincoln to current President Donald Trump, Walsh explains the backstory that shaped some of the most iconic photos in American history.  

In this bonus clip, Walsh describes what it's like covering the current president, who has referred to the media as "the enemy."

Watch the full interview this weekend on your local PBS station.
