A Report on Red China

May 1957
New Republic;5/6/57, Vol. 136 Issue 18, p8
The article focuses on issues related to freedom of the press in the United States. U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles has an open mind, about as open as a bank on Sunday. He might be willing to try a selective experiment to test whether limited freedom of the press is in the national interest. Under this experiment the Secretary would allow American journalists to go to China and report what they find, but only if all the interested magazines, newspapers and newsgathering agencies in the U.S. were to get together on whom should go. This is progress. The U.S. State Department ban on newsmen to the Chinese mainland has been absolute, and one who defied the ban, journalist William Worthy, has just had his request for a renewal of his passport denied.
