The Chargé in Argentina (Cabot) to the Secretary of State
[Received 8:38 p.m.]
2364. In view of increasing reports of censorship imposed on American newspapermen in this Capital, particularly refusal today of radio authorities to permit a factual radio broadcast by Newman, Herald Tribune correspondent, despite informal representations, I propose on Monday morning to deliver a formal protest to FonOff on basis of Resolution XXVII of Mexico Conference29 unless I have before then been instructed to contrary.
- This Resolution recommended that the American Republics (1) guarantee to their people free and impartial access to sources of information; (2) undertake the earliest possible abandonment of censorship measures; and (3) take steps to promote the free exchange of information among their peoples.
