According to this WaPo article, it's been 30 days since Kerry has held a press conference or answered questions from pool reporters.
Originally posted by Washington PostThe last time the Democratic presidential nominee took questions from them was Aug. 9 on the edge of the Grand Canyon, when the small traveling press pool accompanying him was allowed to ask eight questions. And the last time Mr. Kerry held a full-fledged press conference where he faced questions from the entire corps of national reporters covering his campaign was Aug. 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich. He took two questions then.
With all the talk of Carville and Kerry's supposed campaign shake-ups, no one's said much about Kerry's incredible aversion to the press.
Is Kerry that afraid of press coverage?
According to the same article, it's also been months since Bush's last press conference, but:
Originally posted by Washington PostMr. Bush took questions from reporters at least four times in August, including Aug. 2, when he announced his plan to revamp U.S. intelligence services; Aug. 9, when he appeared with Poland's prime minister; Aug. 15, when he toured damage from Hurricane Charley in Florida; and Aug. 23, when he answered a series of questions after meeting with his national security team at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.
