Description
Four leading American correspondents examine the problems of reporting in war time Viet Nam on National Educational Television's "At Issue: The Information War." Filmed in Saigon, the hour long program will feature as participants Charles Mohr of the New York Times; Malcolm W. Browne, Pulitzer Prize winning freelance correspondent and former Associated Press reporter; Dean Brelis, NBC reporter; and Jack Foisie of the Los Angeles Times. The moderator will be N.E.T. Washington correspondent Paul Niven. The panel discusses such questions as: Is it a reporter's job to protect the national interests?; Have there been instances of censorship of the press?; Has the administration attempted to play down unpopular news, such as the extent of civilian causalities?; Do newsmen report more about American failures than successes?; Is information issued by public information officers reliable? The correspondents will also discuss their daily reporting problems, their relationships with government and military officials, and their opinions of the conduct of the war and the quality of the information reaching the American public. Running Time: 58:35 (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
