Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - April 23, 1975, Sioux Center, IowaApril 23, 1975 the Sioux Center news Page 2 editorials fret Potts import tit to motion and its an interesting series of three meetings on the Power of the press was held in Orange City on three consecutive wednesday nights the last on april 16 under sponsorship of Northwestern col lege and the Iowa Board for Public programs in the humanities. It was a Well attended series and clearly indic ated that the Public is interested in knowing More about the communications Media to radio newspaper Magazine the Quality of their ser vice their responsibilities their credibility and the general attitudes of the Public regarding the news Media. Criticism from the panels and members of the three audiences was As was to be expected both adversely critical and complimentary. All agreed that a free press is essential to a democracy such As ours to properly inform the peo ple provide them with the facts they must have to reach sound conclusions and truth based Deci Sions. To be sure there were those who feel that the communications Media can and should improve its credibility broaden its service be a Little More responsible a Little less sensational and emotional in its presentation of news. In other words the press should present All the facts truthfully and in As objective a manner As possible. There seemed fairly general agreement among those who served on the panels and members of the audiences that the press does meddle but generally of necessity and with Good purpose that the press is controlled in some respects through a withholding of facts by those who make the news through deliberate cover ups and because the press to a degree is at the mercy of advertisers some of whom Are intolerant of opposing viewpoints that might crop up from time to time. Is the press too free was one question asked no most seemed to agree. Donald Kaul Des Moines Register Tribune columnist said it is impossible for the press to be too he Des cried the main responsibility of the press As be ing to present the facts the truth As fully As possible within the limits in which it must oper there was one panellist who called the press Lazy and undoubtedly there Are instances where it is. He admonished the people for show ing laziness now and then also and not keeping abreast of things As Well As they should. There were those who Felt that the press some times jeopardizes National Security by presenting too Many details of a Given incident or situation at an Inopportune time. This is a possibility to be sure and Calls for caution and restraint in certain instances but never there were those who expressed the opinion that the press is too inclined in Many instances to be Over cautious to err in favor of compatibility to be too hesitant to get invoked in conflict and controversy when the Public interest indicates this is a justified approach. On the other hand one panellist pointed out a press with a cooperative helpful and constructive attitude can do a better Job of presenting a Community to itself than can a press that keeps things in a constant stir by Over emphasizing the areas of difference and disagreement. The Over All summation of a series on the Power of the press would be the press is doing a reasonably Good if inadequate Job of keeping the Public informed. It Falls Short in some areas and is of importance As a watch dog As Well As a dispenser of news. It should be less dependent on the advertising Dollar but probably never will be for survival if it is to operate on a totally objective and free basis. The people of America would not want to be without their to newspapers and radio regard Sherfi As essential to their general welfare and a Gree that Only if it remains free can the press fun and serve responsibly. Me teas Nas Power to Mold opinion to influence but Seldom if Ever succeeds in totally unit ing the people on any Given Issue because it is not itself United and that s As it should like the press the people must also be free to make up their minds otherwise they risk becom ing victims rather than the benefactors of communications Media.

It was performed in the Sanctuary of our Church on Palm sunday and it made Clear Rome for the first time the real dimensions of the Cross. As the play unfolded i became the thief and murderer Barabbas. You will recall Jesus took Barabbas place on the Cross i suddenly realized As did Barabbas that i share in the sin of Mankind which sent Jesus to the Cross. Sitting there All feelings of self righteousness dissipated themselves in the Stark realization of my own guilt. But another thought flooded my mind As Well. It was the full understand ing of god s love for every human being. He did not wait until we were worthy of his love to save us. On the contrary it was while we were yet sinners that Christ died for us. God found us acceptable and lovable despite our disobedience and spirit of rebellion. The symbolization of this in the events of holy week and easter helps us All to understand our value As persons. That is what this season is All about god s avowal of our Worth to him and this is Why we can rejoice. With the apostle Paul we can be sure that neither death nor life nor anything else in All creation will be Able to separate us from the love of god in Christ Jesus our lord.
