THE MICHIGAN DAILY TUESDAY,
Cater Emphasizes Press Responsibility
By ALLAN STILLWAGON
Douglass Cater, Washington
correspondent of The Reporter
Magazine, yesterday termed mem-
bers of the press "first draftsmen
The co-author of "Ethics in a
Business Society" underlined the
heavy responsibility accorded to
Washington reporters as "part of
the process of democratic govern-
He described the capitol press
as the "nervous system of our
governmental body . . a system
that moves more quickly than any
of our other communication sys-
Officialdom is becoming in-
creasingly aware that the press
is a part of government, the one-
time special assistant to the Sec-
retary of the Army reported.
He cited a recent comment by
Senator J. William Fulbright (D-
Ark) that "we in the Senate are
almost creatures of the press."
Sen. Fulbright was concerned
about a sizable but unpublicized
body of discontent centered
around President Dwight D. Eis-
enhower's Middle-East Doctrine.
Many members of the "citadel"
wished to examine the new policy
morecritically, but no newspapers
had-re istered this wish..-
"If o'ne large paper should car-
ry the story," Sen. Fulbright told
Cater, "Johnson (Sen. Lyndon
J o h n s o n, Democratic majority
leader) will give us time to de-
"If not," he said, "the resolu-
tion will go through in two or'
three days time."
REPORTER'S REPORTER-Douglass Cater yesterday outlined
the role of the press in government at his campus lecture, spon-
sored by the department of journalism.
The papers did carry the story,
Cater pointed out, and the Senate
is still debating.
Power Not in Editorials
This demonstrates that the
"real power of the press does not
lie in the editorial columns," he
observed, but in the choice of
"which news gets the banner
headline, which is played second

lead, and which is dropped from
Presidential press conferences
are the most drmatic testimonial
to this power, the Harvard gradu-
ate said, for a reporter "with only
the accredation of his paper as
their Washington correspondent,
and a routine security check, is
admitted to the executive office
building. They may ask the pres-
ident any question of their own
phrasing ... no matter how em-
These questions and their an-
swers are printed all over the
world, are studied by diplomats
and foreign leaders, he reminded,
"but there is a tendency on the
part of the press to take this too
Fail in Responsibility
W a s h i n g t o n correspondents
failed to realize their responsibil-
ity recently, Sen. John Sparkman's
(D-Ala) past travelling compan-
ion and speech writer claims.
The United States' "oil lift" to
Europe. was not functioning pro-
perly, he said, "but in three of the
President's press conferences the
subject was not mentioned."
Finally, questions were asked,
and the chief executive and his
aides could no longer ignore the
fact that the lift was not operat-
ing as it should, Cater said.
"Frequently those in govern-
ment authority are not aware of
programs being developed below,"
Cater testified, "and it is the re-
sponsibility of the reporters to
bring development of these pro-
grams to their attention."
The projected effect of news'
reports on the reader were singled
out by the Guggenhibm Award
winner. He outlined the "back-
ground b r i e f i n g" conferences
which have largely replaced per-
sonal contact and "cronyism" as
mpjor news sources
Dining and Grilling
At these simultaneous "dining
and grilling" sessions, top-level
administrators privately cover the
spectrum from "deep background"
(items which must not be repeated
even to the reporter's immediate
superiors) to "light background"
(when news may be printed with
a disguised source reference).
"Every reporter reaches mo-
ments of self-truth when he real-
izes how dependent he is on those
around him . . even the preju-
diced sources," Cater revealed.
Later he expanded this "para-
doxical problem, where there ' is
no clear right or wrong," and the
reporter must simply decide "this
is what I will do."
This necessary j u d g e m e n t
means that "journalism is a pro-
fession - not a craft," Cater de-
clared, and that "ii modern gov-
ernment . . . where television has
taken the job of graphic descrpi-
tion completely from the papers
. the reporter is a professional,
not merely a glorified note-taker."
