Kurtenbach chides press
Citing a "corrupt hierarchy" and the
"scandalous" reporting, Ron Kurtenbach
Wednesday night attacked Omaha and
Lincoln newspapers while speaking to Sigma
Delta Chi, a professional journalism society.
Kurtenbach is a director of the Lincoln
Gazette, a leftist newspaper.
Kurtenbach said that many times news
has not been reported or reported
untruthfully because of pressure.
For example, he said a Lincoln Journal
reporter told him that he personally
supported distributing the Gazette on
Lincoln public school grounds. The reporter
then editorialized against distribution,
Hfe "also said that reporters should "share
their perceptions" instead of being strictly
objective. "At the Gazette, every reporter is
his own editor." We say things that they
should have," Kurtenbach said, referring to
the local papers. "If we discover corruption
in ourselves, we print it."
The Gazette currently has a circulation of
6,000 and made $200 from donations the
last issue, Kurtenbach reported.
He also criticized radio and television,
and said he hopes to start a radio station
with a "flexible format."
Referring to CBS news commentator
Walter Cronkite, Kurtenbach said: "It's too
bad he didn't come out of his objective
shell." He said he believes Cronkite was
disgusted with the Vietnam war, but could
not express his views on the air.
He said he believes the Gazette's anti-war,
anti-Nixon, women's liberation, and other
stands are "a reflection of a movement." He
said he thinks more people are. going to
"organize and rebel" against current
