Obama holds record for ignoring WH Press, but he’ll be on the Daily Show again on Oct 18
Google it any which way you want, from Dana Milbank in October:
… Obama has only himself to blame, because he set himself up for this emperor-has-no-clothes moment. For the past four years, he has worked assiduously to avoid being questioned, maintaining a regal detachment from the media and other sources of dissent and skeptical inquiry.
Obama has set a modern record for refusal to be quizzed by the media, taking questions from reporters far less often than did Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and even George W. Bush. Obama has shied from mixing it up with members of Congress, too. And, especially since Rahm Emanuel’s departure, Obama is surrounded by a large number of yes men who aren’t likely to get in his face.

NEW YORK, October 12, 2012 — President Barack Obama will make his sixth appearance as a guest on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Thursday, October 18 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, his second since taking office as President of the United States of America.
Last night Paul Ryan said a Romney/Ryan administration wouldn’t duck the tough questions. Obama has done it for almost four years.
Obama should drop off a resume when he’s at Viacom and leave the governing of America to competent, qualified adults willing to be accountable like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, not an entertainer, which seems to be Obama’s only real stock-in-trade.
