Description

In this panel discussion, fifteen foreign journalists discuss their experiences working for American newspapers, and give their assessment of the U.S. press. They conclude that American newspapers are more honest but more ignorant than those abroad, and are unconsciously more corrupt because they tell Americans what they want to hear rather than what they ought to know. June 21, 1965.
