Press bias charge hurled QUEBEC (CP) Jean Mar- cliand, regional economic ex- pansion minister, criticized the -EC and some newspapers for what he called biased report- ing. Speaking at the Liberal meet- ing which nominated him by acclimation as the party's can- didate in Langelier riding in the Oct. 30 federal election, Mr. Marchand gave examples of whal he termed press bias. He criticized Toronto Star lor announcing his department had distributed millions of dollars to big companies without refer- ring to figures publislied by tho department. These figures demonstrated clearly that the type of grant referred to by the Toronto newspaper represented only a minor part of his department's policies. FOIJ.OWKD BY CAR Another example of press bias, Mr. Marchand said, was Ihe reporting of an incident Sunday night in whicli lie said he was followed by six men in a car. He was alone with an aitle and had no RCMP officer with him. They stopped their car twice to see what the car following (hem would do, he said. It also stopped both times and Mr. Marchand sought help from the provincial police. The next day, he said, La Soleil ran a report of the in- cident under a headline which said: "Marchand is 'brave' but he takes no chances." The CBC French-language network reported that he "tlxnight he was followed." "That's how you destroy a politician.''
