Arlington Heights Daily Herald (Newspaper) - May 2, 1980, Arlington Heights, Illinois The daily Herald Friday May 2, 1980 Section 3�?5 Diane Mermigas television to int giving whole picture on Iran crisis after spending four dangerous and harried Days in Tehran this week wbb to Anchorman Bill Kurtis is convinced american television news coverage of the iranian crisis is misleading incomplete and a jingoistic Al by leading us Down the line to the 39-year-old newsman made the harsh condemnation thursday Only hours after returning from the kind of Plum assignment that is every journalists dream. Kurtis was in Paris and on his Way to Pakistan to research a Story about drugs a week ago when the world Learned of the United states foiled attempt to Rescue american hostages being held in Iran. With the Aid of an influential iranian . Citizen living in Tehran Kurtis obtained a four Day visa on sunday although iranian authorities Are refusing to renew or Issue visas to american newsmen. The opportune timing allowed Kurtis and a lbs network cameraman to film the desecration of american servicemen killed in the aborted Rescue Effort the bombings that rocked Central Tehran and even More important a Side of iranian life that Kurtis says americans have been a cheated of a i work in the business and i went there with an image of ancient Persia with people chanting and protesting in the streets. Its the image that a been created by television during the five months we be lived with the hostage situation a he said. A i get to Tehran and find a modern City very much like Chicago with skyscrapers and traffic in the streets. I talk to the people and find out that they All done to hate americans and that they All done to agree with the holding of the hostages a Kurtis said. A a in a afraid television has created a War mentality with hostile images of a people and a country that there is another Side Kurtis acknowledges that television journalists largely Are hampered by time constraints. A maybe television has not shown us the whole picture just because there is Only enough time to skim the headlines a he a but we done to need any More pictures of shouting demonstrators and people protesting outside the american embassy. That constant pounding night after night Hasni to allowed for much focus on trying to understand the background of the country its people everything we done to see that is part of the broader picture Kurtis statements Are especially bold considering he is one of the highest paid local Anchorman in the country and the Only one allowed to work for the network. Kurtis who was a West coast based lbs network news correspondent for three years in the Early 1970s, is a substitute Anchor on the lbs a a morning newscast and contributes reports to a sunday morning and the a a lbs evening there is speculation that he May return full time to network news when his Channel 2 contract expires in May 1981. In that sense Kurtis timely Middle East visit was not Only a coup for Channel 2 since he is the Only Chicago to newsman to make it into Ira but an important personal achievement. Kurtis will expound on his mostly Telephone filed reports from Tehran in a special three part report on wbb tvs 6 and to . Newscasts beginning monday. Several of the reports also will air on cd so a sunday morning this weekend or next. The series will focus on a the More human Side of the iranian situation Kurtis said. It will explore the reasons for iranians hatred of the deposed Shah the inseparability of religion and politics and the sources that financed last years revolution. In a completely separate report Kurtis will probe the recent drug death of an iranian student residing in Omaha Nebraska and the reckless use of drugs which Are being filtered into the United states from the Middle East. A what i Hope we can do is expose another layer of the Story Over there to further american understanding a Kurtis said. Kurtis said the iranian government prevented him and other newsmen from speaking with the militants american hostages or iranian officials. Satellite transmitted news reports and tapes were censored. A the government does no to like american journalists because they done to think their Side of the Story is being told a he said. For a moment tuesday in the crowded streets of Tehran Kurtis said he was frightened by the blast of bombs planted by iranian rebels who Are calling for the overthrow of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Later that Day an angry mob shouting a death to american assailed Kurtis and his cameramen while they were filming. A local policeman sheltered the newsmen in a store until the crowd dispersed. Those were the times i came closest to fearing for my life while i was there a said Kurtis who skirted similar danger several months ago in Saigon. It was there reporting on the orphans of american military men and vietnamese women Kurtis arranged to have documented evidence in the form of letters and photographs smuggled out of the country for an american state department investigation.
