Is there audio, video, or a transcript from this event?

Good question, Jon.

It also brings to mind another question I've always wondered about.
Were rehearsals for the 1969 Vegas comeback recorded?

I would think that they were but where are the tapes? Those had to be something. Ah well, maybe someday they'll surface.

Sorry to digress on your thread.

It's hard to believe that this press conference was not recorded on film in some way!

Then again, since the organisation around Elvis didn't seem to care much for documenting historical events (why the heck didn't they record or even film the live comeback in 69???), nothing would surprise me...

The press con on June 25th 1968 was captured on film.

Knowing it was filmed...does EPE own it???
1969 rehearsals are in the Elvis Sessions III isnĀ“t it??

I think you're thinking of video footage, I'm not so sure it was videod or capture on motion film, but my comment followed Kristians:

We've seen from the photos that it must have been captured on film in some way - how else would we have the photos ?

Is there at least a transcript or Associated Press story online somewhere? I would just love to see/hear/read Elvis' attitude at this time.

You don't need to head audio from this event. These aren't the events you are looking for...

forget about the press conference, It's hard to believe that, perhaps the Greatest performance in Elvis' career, was recorded in MONO!!!

The other thing about it was that it was the 35th anniversary of that engagement and it kinda passed over many on here, no one picked up on it and I thought I'd do something to commemorate it.
