B-90634-23 to television log Baker favors coverage of debates new York a although millions of to viewers have seen the House judiciary committees impeachment debates a major Star of 1973�?Ts televised Senate watergate hearings admits he a not often among them. The reason says sen. Howard h. Baker r-tenn., is that he a been Busy travelling in his state talking with constituents and generally sampling Public opinion for the past week. The watched very Little of the debate a said the vice chairman of the Senate watergate committee. A i saw some of the first Days considerations but i Haven to seen much since that still he added his viewing has left him with a pretty fair in. V ression of the House committee a a i thin the members obviously Are languishing a Good bit Over the thing. They give the impression of being genuine and sincere. They re Well grounded in the sen. Sam Ervin jr., d-n.c., chairman of the Senate watergate committee declined to discuss any impressions to coverage of judiciary debate might have Given him. Baker interviewed by phone from his office in Huntsville tenn., 50 Miles Northwest of Knoxville was asked How he Felt live National to coverage affected the proceedings of either committee. Of his own committee he said a a it probably had the effect of inducing people Yaj ask questions they otherwise might not have asked even repetitious he said he comment on the House committee because he a unfamiliar with its usual procedures and because its members Haven to had to contend with the problem of live to coverage before. A a so who knows what effect television has a he asked. A a but my guess is the effect of to in terms of the grandstanding potential is a lot less than the Good it does in terms of the Public a right to is there anything about to coverage of the watergate hearings he now wishes had been done differently the Only change head Uke he said would be adoption of the judiciary committees policy barring commercial Breaks during any part of actual debate. No such bar existed during the watergate hearings. Baker said he favored live to coverage of a Senate impeachment trial of president Nixon should that result from House action. A a i think it would be a great travesty if it were not done a he said adding that he thinks the Senate almost certainly will permit live to coverage of the possible trial. Does he think such nationally televised coverage would affect the outcome of the trial a a no i done to Baker said without hesitation. A a i think its far too important and i think the members of the Senate feel the importance of the event too much to suggest that television coverage would have any affect.
