ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ban on the entry of U.S. newsmen to Communist China by Secretary, John Foster Dulles. The press has challenged Dulles' right to lift the passports of newsmen who travel to China, but its challenge has been mild indeed considering that it is the freedom of the press itself which is at stake. Nor have more than a handful of members of Congress, all Democrats, taken issue with the Dulles ban. If legislators whose task is to guard against Executive usurpations are silent, Mr. Dulles cannot be solely blamed for the impasse of which he has become the symbol. The blame attaches to all--to U.S. national timidity and refusal to confront the broad fact of Communist China's rise to power in Asia.
