This article focuses on the portrayal of U.S. President Ronald Reagan and his views in the U.S. media. In the January 1981, there was much thought given to the need for developing fresh formats for the President's sessions with the White House press corps. It is reported that the University of Virginia's Miller Center for Public Affairs even issued a "Report on Presidential Press Conferences," replete with observations, recommendations, and helpful hints. According to the author, any President who took office January 1981 was going to have his hands full exercising leadership in the White House press domain.
