called big problem
Differing opinions on who should control the Panama
Canal is "one of the most important and worst problems
between the United States and Latin America," a Mexican
journalist said Thursday.
Gregorio Gonzalez, director of the Collective Commun
ications and Journalism School in Guadalajara, Mexico,
spoke to Nebraska journalists Thursday in his second of
three stops in the United States.
On his second visit to the U.S., Gonzalez has been
"talking and listening" to Americans' opinions about
Latin American issues,
. . "It would make me happy to see Panama the owner of
their own land," Gonzalez said. "Every country should be
the owner of their own territory."
However, he said, U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kis
singer's shuttle diplomacy tends" , to control other
"For foreigners, words like participation, confronta
tion, and equality between people are a manifestation of
the U.S. culture," he said.
If governments don't accept criticism by newspapers,
people won't have confidence in politicians, Gonzalez
added. . - ...... .. ... . . ., .' ..
Gonzalez was referring to a recent incident in which
the entire editorial staff of Excelsior, a Mexico City news
paper, resigned in a dispute over governmental inter
vention. In Mexico, he said, "the news media is forced to
support governmental programs."
"Any government is responsible for mamtaining an
attitude of remaining outside of communications,
especially newspapers," he said.
V coverage priority being studied
Preliminary research in a study designed to compare
network television coverage of the 1972 and 1976 presi
dential election campaigns indicates the networks again
are focusing more on candidates than issues, according
to a UNL researcher. -
James Klumpp, UNL assistant professor of speech,
said a study of September network newscasts shows
that the networks are emphasizing the successes or failures
of the candidates rather than the issues.
After receiving much 'criticism for doing the same in
.1972, the networks committed themselves on the air and
in trade journals to do more issue coverage in 1976,
"We're trying to find out if they're doing that,"
Klumpp said. He is being assisted in the study by Dan
Sullivan, a UNL speech doctoral candidate, and Dennis
Garrett, a UNL graduate assistant working on his masters
From Oct. 1 to Nov. 2, Klumpp said, the three will
tape, code and analyze network newscasts. A $600
UNL Research Council grant will be used to buy tapes
of 1972 network newscasts for the same days from the ''
Vanderbilt University television news archives.
The 1972 tapes also will be analyzed, and those two
analyses compared, Klumpp said.'
"The content analyses will determine the predomin
ant mode of coverage whether the newscast focuses on
the issues, whether the reporter looks at the campaign as a
game with a arinoss mentality, or whether the news
cast projects the image of the candidate," Klumpp said.
Campaign coverage for the newscast is divided into 12
categories, such as the position of the report in the overall
newscast, whether the report focuses on what happened in
the campaign that day, or whether the report focuses on
campaign strategy, he said.
