Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - June 1, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant news vol. 92, no. 128 it. Pleasant Iowa monday evening june i 1970 Price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain the pressure to i i Ake All journalism a a personal the pressure is on to change great National publications a the new York times Newsweek Magazine a into echoes of new York City a Village voice which specializes in a personal journalism that is often colourful and witty but which nonetheless wrenches All the news in a violently anti establish ment anti capitalist direction. The technique followed by the a proliferating leftist critics of the big establishment organs is to Cut in from a Point at 180-degree variance from that of vice president Spiro Agnew. Where Agnew chastises the a a Media for alleged leftist tendentious reporting and news judgment the leftist critics argue a and attempt to prove by eavesdropping a that the new York times the Washington Post and the news magazines Are so Bent on de personalizing their stories that reporters can to really be themselves. The critics Are frankly for the sort of journalism that Charles a. Dana of the new York Sun and Horace Greeley of the new York Tribune practice in the immediate Post civil War period when the personal idiosyncrasies and values of the editors were openly displayed on the front pages and sometimes earned casings and horse whippings from enraged citizens. The proof of my assertion is to be found in a Long analysis of Newsweek by Paul Cowan and Jack Newfield in the Village voice. It is also to be observed in an article called a the Cabal at the new York times which Way to the revolution a in the Lively Magazine called new York written by Edwin Diamond and in sex new York Post columnist Murray Kempton a piece in the new York review of books on Spiro agnews speeches and Joe Mcginness so the Selling of the or. Kempton accuses the Chicago Tribune of the heinous crime of being solicitous for the vice president s safety. Too the Diamond article on the new to Ork times would have made the late publisher Adolph Ochs and his famous managing editor Carr Van Anda apoplectic. There have always been a a cabals on the times they had them in the Nineteen thirties when partisans of managing editor Edwin l. James who was responsible for the daily paper fought a Clandestine but nonetheless bitter War against the alleged imperialist tendencies of Lester Merkel the sunday editor and they had them at a later Date when the new York office and the Washington Bureau became embroiled Over questions of political news jurisdiction. Too the fascinating Story of these cabals May be found in tale eds Book a the kingdom and the but the a a cabals used to be attributed to the Well known grime of office politics. It is different now or. Diamond thinks it terrible that the times news desk a a censored its drama critic Clive Barnes by excising a line claiming that the Rosenborg who were convicted of helping Joseph Stalin get the secret of the atom bomb were a innocent victims of Barnes did no to mention the word a a atom or a atom bomb in his review of a play about the Rosenborg which is rather like reviewing a a Macbeth without mentioning blood. The new a a Cabala at the times according to or. Diamond s eavesdropping wants every reporter As Well As the cultural critics to be allowed to judge motives. In or. Diamonds View the reporter of the trial of the a Chicago Beveill should have been privileged to Start out with the Assumption that the Chicago court system was intent on getting political revenge. Abe Rosenthal the times managing editor is inferentially criticized for saying that private political opinions done to belong in cultural reviews a a otherwise we would have ten extra political commentators on the paper a and the news columns of the paper a will not be made into a political Broadsheet a too in Short Rosenthal is condemned for sticking to policies of objectivity that in och s Day made the times great. And the criticism is levelled despite the fact that As Rosenthal says a your concept of the news has expanded. No subject is too the Village voice condemns the Newsweek editors for being a drained of the passion to fight for life a casualties and in other words Newsweek is being put Down because it is not a crusading me education is Hope for future a Ray Iowa governor Robert d. Ray True self and begin working to rid told Iowa Wesleyan graduating society of indifference opposition class sunday that education is the Hope for the future and Wesleyan a Iowa a oldest College a has provided the class of 1970 the Best possible Opportunity to get a Good education.
