Veteran U.S. Editor Critical of Way

Press Prints Arab 'Fabrications'

WASHINGTON (JTA)—A veter-
an American editor expressed
sharp criticism of American news-
paper coverage of the Arab-Israeli
conflict charging that the Ameri-
can press "misinforms and mis-
leads many millions of newspaper
readers" by equating "verifiable
facts" from the Israeli side with
"fabricated reports" from the
Arabs.
Philip Hochstein, former senior
editor of the Newhouse newspaper
organization and publisher of the
Washington Jewish Week, reprint-
ed a report by Roy Essoyan, Mid-
dle East correspondent of the As-
sociated Press, in the bulletin of
the American Society of News-
paper Editors, in which the cor-
respondent asserted that it is not
possible for a newsman to obtain
first-hand information on the war
situation on the Arab side.
He also quoted another article
in the bulletin, by Alfred Friendly
of the Washington Post, describing
Israel as a free society in which
reporters enjoy the basic freedoms
of the press.
Essoyan wrote in the ASNE bul-
letin that "Tbe main problem with
covering the war from the Arab
side is the Arabs won't let you

anywhere near it" He noted com-
munications difficulties and that
"censorship is rough and frequent-
ly illogical." He declared that
"Most major Arab news breaks—
the coups, assassinations, execu-
tions and Arab-Israeli battles that
provide our daily news fare—are
first announced over government
radio stations."

These communiques, Essoyan
said, "are seldom prompt or im-
partial but they are usually all
you'll get from the Arab side."
The AP correspondent pointed
out, "Freedom of the press is a
concept foreign to the Arab
world. The Arabs regard the
press and radio as propaganda
branches of the government. Out-
side of Lebanon, that's what they
are."

Editorially commenting on Es-
soyan's statements, Hochstein sug-
gested that "our newspapers are
guilty of peddling partisan propa-
ganda disguised as news when they
fail each time they' publish such
an item to clearly label it as com-
ing from a country that does not
permit free access to information."
He stressed that "Editors have no
right to equate Arab reports with
reports from Israel when Arab
states permit no free reporting
whereas Israel affords freedom
and cooperation to independent and
even hoStile reporters."
The editor declared that "the
very least of this offense is that
the American press thereby gives
the best of the deal to those coun-
tries that give reporters the least
facility, while in effect punishing
Israel for making reporting a com-
mon right and even a pleasant
exercise. The serious part of this
offense is that it misinforms and
misleads many millions of news-
paper readers."

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The
neo-Nazi National Socialist White
People's Party will seek court re-
, dress over the Arlington County
School Board's cancellation of its
permit for a "white power" rally
at Yorktown High School. The per-
mit was revoked because Jews and
Negroes were to be barred.
The National Capital Area Am-
erican Civil Liberties Union, while
' opposing a restrictive public meet-
ing, announced it would sue on
behalf of the party's right to "hold
a public meeting that is open to all
or a private meeting for their own
membership." The party was said

PARIS (JTA) — Vigorous action
by local authorities and the Asso-
ciation of Christians and Jews has
apparently ended a whispering ,
campaign at Amiens that certain
Jewish and non-Jewish shopkeep-
ers were engaged in white slave
traffic.
The rumors that cropped up in
the provincial city about three
weeks ago are dying out, and life
there is steadily returning to nor-
mal, it was reported. '
The rumor epidemic in Amiens
was strikingly similar to one that
occurred in Orleans more than a
year ago. Unlike the latter, it vic-
timized more non-Jewish than Jew-
ish shopkeepers. It came to public
attention when a complaint was
lodged by a non-Jew, Mrs. Blanche
Dupont. As was the case in
Orleans, the origin of the rumors
was obscure and could not be
traced to any group or individual.
They held that certain shopkeep-
ers lured women into their pre-
mises, drugged them and sold them

The rumor campaign in Orleans,
directed almost exclusively at Jew-

loss of business. Police there even-
