Brazil Daily Times (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Brazil, Indiana For National newspaper Weeka letter from the editor a letter from the editor on the occasion of National newspaper week oct. 4-11 dear header this year the american press is celebrating 200 years of service to readers and we at the times take Pride in being part of that tradition. A free society is based upon a free press and a vigilant press. Democracy cannot survive unless the citizens of that democracy have Access to adequate and precise information. Neither a radio news report or a one paragraph printed summation of a four hour school Board meeting can provide adequate information to the Active citizens. Reports which Are taken by a a Absentee reporters cannot have the Peoples interests at heart. A report to be in the Best newspaper tradition must be written by a Man who was at the scene who waited through hours of dribble to cull the import ant facts and present them to the Public. The times has endeavoured to follow these principles to the Best of our ability. Of course sometimes we goof.

We Are working on other stores now. These stories take time. Often the persons involved Are uncooperative so we have to devel level. Often we discover its of new sources of information a prank or simply based on and new techniques to get at tha cars who were called upon to express opinions in neighbouring communities political rallies pfc. We Are proud that we have been Able to report not Only w hat happens in Clay county but also on events in Washington which affect Clay county residents. We have maintained close and constant Contact with the office of congressman John Myers with Indiana a two senators and with our representatives to the state legislature. We have consistently brought the news to the county first and most accurately. But All of this is really Noth rumours not fact. Then we get accused of pulling a this is not the Case. We appreciate hearing rumours and having the Chance to Check them out. We appreciate the a a tips but can Only print them if they Are proved and believe us when we say that All Energy is expended to find All of the facts. Recently after a times investigation of an Anonymous Rumor we Learned the names and addresses of Slot machine vendors facts. But we Are always looking. So on the 200th anniversary of the american press these Are the thoughts words and deeds of the times. In our 82-year history we have brought the biggest stories to Clay count ians and we have brought them to the Public first. We shall continue to do so in the next 82 years and for the next an4 the next after that.
