well, but more important the pub-
lic would reap the benefits.
Under the present court defini-
tions of libel, the media have
carved out for themselves an im-
munity not granted any other sec-
tor of society. They are immune
from accountability in libel cases
if malice is not proven. In other
words, they can print information
which is defamatory, erroneous,
untrue and not be held accounta-

That is an untenable position
when it involves the public inter-
est.
The public will not endure such
arrogance as displayed by Time
which, after the decision, still
maintained the story was"sub-

A more defensible position for
the media would be to argue that
truth should be the only defense
against libel. The media should
demand of themselves the same
high standard they demand from
all those they cover.

swing the pendulum back to a
more conservative view if these
kinds of cases continue to receive

1984 Sees Record
Tourism In Israel

New York (JTA) — The r
greatest increase of American
tourism to Israel since the estab-
lishment of the State in 1948 took
place last year, it was announced
by Moshe Shoshani, Israel's com-
missioner for tourism for North_

which represents a staggering 15
percent increase over 1983 when
354,000 Americans travelled
there." A peak figure of 1.3 mil-
lion visitors worldwide was also a
record achievement.
