"La Opinion," has been in

The Community Is Invited

York Times investigative
reporter, continues to give
anxious moments to media
people throughout the land.
In this,Fall and Winter of
the press's discontent, grave
debate continues over a re-
porter's right (if there is
such •a right) to protect the
confidentiality of his valu-
able news sources. In Oc-
tober 1978, the Gallup poll
showed- 68 percent of those
questioned supported
Farber. But the issue re-
mains unsettled.
Troubled journalists
have acknowledged that
the First Amendment ap-
pears to bulwark
Farber's claim, yet con-
fess a fear that the con-
stitutional rights of the
indicted physician, later
found innocent of kil
ling
five patients, may have
been violated by Farber's
refusal to yield. And of
course, ultra-
conservative lawyers,
judges, and political fig-
ures have in many in-
stances Viewed Farber's
incarceration as one
newsman's "comeup-
pance.
Along the way, pub-
lishers have been further
disturbed by the court rul-
ing in Zurcher vs. The Stan-
ford, California, Daily, a
college paper, holding that
search warrants may be
granted policemen, enabl-
ing them to invade news
rooms and rifle reporter's
notes for evidence not
necessarily related to any
real or imagined wrong-
doing by the newspaper.
Some Congressmen are
pushing legislation to rein-
force shield laws on the
books of 26 states. Their aim
is to keep inviolate news-
, papers' confidential,
sources. In the White
House ? President Carter
has reversed his own stand
and is now calling_ for
statutory protection for re-
porters — a valuable effort
calculated to make more
explicitly the free press as-
pect of the First Amend-
ment.
As great newspapers like
the Chicago Daily News die
and the stolid London Times
falter, as strikes keep the
_ presses of three New York
dailies locked up for several
weeks, as media mergers
become commonplace, it is
essential to protect honest
reporters and fearless'edito-
rial writers.
Those who think not
might take a few mo-
ments to review recent
frightening actions in
UNESCO sessions.
TherOn, Third . World
representatives from a
number of the 146 nations
participating in the
strange , proceedings
have been lobbying
fiercely for international
regulation of .the collec-
tion, processing, and
transmission of news
across national frontiers.
A truly free and responsi-
ble press continues a bright
jewel in democracy's crown.

My hand upon it! the evil
man shall not be un-
. punished.
