McCutcheon 9814 News said CBC priority TORONTO (CP) Lister Sinclair, executive vice- president of the CBC, said Saturday night that "our No. 1 priority as a public broadcasting service is the news." In a wide-ranging address to newspaper men attending the National Newspaper Awards dinner, he talked of CBC prac- tice and objectives in news handling and noted the similarity with the aims of the print media. "We are very proud' to be journalists, to be thought of as he said. The CBC regarded the "core of a national broadcasting service as being our news" and "the chief news editor of CBC television is the most important editor in the country" because he has an audience of three million. He regarded the objectives of both broadcasting and the print media as "helping build an informed democracy" and "preparing society for change." The print media had the ad- vantage over broadcasting in that it enabled the reader to look once again at the printed page. But broadcasting could present feelings. USE THE ITEM? This brought up the question of the use by both sides of so- called sensational matter. Should newspapers have used photos and telecasters film of a Vietnamese monk burning himself to death or of a Vietnamese execution. "I think we said Mr. Sinclair. "Not for purely sensational value, though it was sensational, but it forces people to ask questions and it gives us a chance to help them answer these questions."
