Kennedy’s use of television, “no official face has ever become so much a part of American consciousness.” From his debates with Republican candidate Richard Nixon to his sixty-four live press conferences, President Kennedy engaged the public in a continuing political conversation about vital issues of national importance. Now into the twenty-first century, President Kennedy is still considered one of the political masters of the media: he had an astute understanding of the nuances of television and how to message even the littlest detail.
