WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Joe Biden wraps up his first year in the White House, he has held fewer news conferences than any of his five immediate predecessors at the same point in their presidencies. He also has participated in fewer media interviews than any of his recent predecessors. That's according to new research from Towson University professor emerita Martha Joynt Kumar. The dynamic has the White House facing questions about whether the president, who vowed to have the most transparent administration in the nation’s history, has fallen short in pulling back the curtain on how his administration operates and missing opportunities to explain his agenda.
