Meet the Press

Republican presidential candidate and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani may be known for security issues, but he’s promising that if he becomes president he’d also bring back a rarely used public forum called the presidential news conference.
Mr. Giuliani said he got used to regular news conferences as New York’s mayor.
“As president, I’d probably have many more press conferences than anyone since Kennedy,” he said. “I enjoy doing them. They keep me on top of things. They do mean you make a few more mistakes, because when you answer a lot of questions and you are a little more open about it, you are going to have to go back and correct what you said. But it’s much better. It keeps you on your toes and much more able to figure out the situation that day.”
