OBAMA BEATS RECORD FOR LEAST NUMBER OF NEWS CONFERENCES

WASHINGTON TIMES - President Obama, who pledged to establish the most open and transparent administration in history, surpasses his predecessor's record for avoiding a full-fledged question-and-answer session with White House reporters in a formal press conference. President George W. Bush's longest stretch between prime-time, nationally televised press conferences was 214 days, from April 4 to Nov. 4, 2004. Mr. Obama tops that record on Monday, going 215 days - stretching back to July 22, according to records kept by CBS Radio's veteran reporter Mark Knoller.
