STOP THE PRESS Public servants want to serve public in private. BY GABRIELLE COSGRIFF ROBERTA K. TILLINGHAST, PRESIDENT Houston • Galveston • San Antonio • Corpus Christi Houston mayor Jim McConn is miffed at the local media. He says he may just have to get his news in future from the out-of-town press. The reason for Hizzo- ner's miffdom is the press coverage of his son Terry McConn's arrest (Aug 3) for loitering at the scene of an accident. Police Chief B.K. Johnson intervened a few hours after the arrest and sent the youth home from a soutwest substation in a police car without charges being filed "Because it was the mayor's son." The arresting officer, S.E. Carr, said he would file misdemeanor charges against Terry McConn."We do not want any special treatment," the mayor told the press. Let me remind you," he said, "that the charge is a failure to move on, a class C misdemeanor, not a murder, rape, incest or robbery. You would think that all of them had been committed the way you all have played it up." McConn has also cancelled, "for security reasons," the distribution of his weekly public schedule. When asked if that decision had anything to do with his anger at the press, McConn replied:"! don't think nosy reporters need to know where I am every working moment of my life. Does that answer your question?" McConn is not alone among public servants in harbouring ill wiil towards the Houston contingent of the fourth estate. Last week, Houston school superintendent Billy Reagan refused to release recent test scores of high school students in the district/'Nobody else is releasing them. Why should we?" Reagan told Houston Post reporter Jorjanna Price, who had requested the scores. Price reported that Reagan said he was unfairly treated in widespread publicity given to the results of the Texas Assessment of Basic Skills (TABS), a statewide test given to all fifth and ninth graders. So the mayor and the ichool superintendent are cutting back on information to the press, and thereby to the public, their employers. Apparently, both these officials have been embarrassed by reports in the local press. Neither has challenged the veracity of what was reported, they just didn't like it. So the press will now be punished for their temerity. Xenophon, the Greek historian, described how reporters of negative tidings were decapitated "as effortlessly as the scythe lops off the heads of the tallest poppies." Well, we're an open, democratic, society and that kind of thing doesn't happen any more. Does it? The only permanent record, in print, of the recent UN World Conference on Women in Copenhagen (July 14-30) is Forum 80, a daily newspaper published by the Forum of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO.) Many women attending the conference felt that Forum 80 did not serve them well, either in its staffing or its execution. Nancy Landau, representing Breakthrough at the conference, (see story p. 24) told us: "Everybody was bewildered — more than that, we were angry and frustrated — at the sexist tone of the articles, the unflattering photographs and the hostile cartoons. It wasn't exactly positive imagery." A letter to Forum 80 (July 16) from Pat Zanger, Women's Organization for Equality, Belgium, read: "Now we know about the 'splendid African dress,' 'resplendent' matching outfits, and Queen Margrethe 'dressed in dark blue and a neatly tilted white pill box hat.' (Page 1, July 15.) "Where was Forum 80 reporter John Rowley during the July 11-12 journalists' encounter when UN Conference Secretary General Lucille Mair referred to the 'obsession of the media with covering women as spectacles' and said she hoped journalists at this year's conference would cover women not as subjects, but rather co- 12 HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
