President Obama appeared at today’s White House press briefing and took questions from the media, beginning with Fox News’ Major Garrett.

Many members of the media have complained in recent weeks that the administration is attempting to bypass press conferences, in favor of releasing information via one-on-one interviews and social media channels.

This the President’s first press conference since July. As Fox News’ Garrett notes, Obama has held 27 total press conferences in his first year in office, compared to 19 for George W. Bush and 45 for Bill Clinton.
