1. Прочитайте текст и письменно ответьте по-английски на вопросы, следующие за текстом.
The Amendment to the USA Constitution prohibits the Congress from making any law that interferes with the freedom of the press and this freedom has been vigorously defended.
The media indeed have uncovered, made public many secrets that the government would have preferred to keep secret, such as Watergate scandal, leading to constant tension between journalists and government officials. Some people say that the media – and television in particular – have become so influential that in fact they are the political process, shaping public opinion.
Although there two American news services operating worldwide – the Associated Press (AP) and United Press International (UPI) – the tremendous size of the nation, the variety of time zones, and the general preoccupation with mainly local issues make it difficult for national daily newspapers to exist. An attempt has been made to introduce the “popular” “US Today” on a nationwide basis, and “The Wall Street Journal” comes close to being a national newspaper. “The New York Times”, with a circulation of 900,000 is, perhaps, the most influential daily newspaper, followed by “The Washington Post” and “The Los Angeles Times”.
All large American cities have at least one newspaper and, although largely concerned with local affairs, they are also read in other states. Periodicals exist for virtually every type of interest, some with just a tiny circulation, others like “Times” with a circulation worldwide of more than 6 million copies. More than 50 of the leading magazines produce over one million copies of each issue.
Over 98% of American homes have television sets, and there are more than 900 commercial television stations. More than 600 of these are affiliated with the big three private national television networks, ABC, NBC and CBS, which show their programmes at the same time throughout the nation during prime time (the hours in which most people watch television – usually from 7.30 p.m. to 11.00 p.m.) The rest are either independent or in smaller networks.
An increasing number of Americans also subscribe to cable television stations. There is no national radio station in the United States, but every large city has dozens of independent stations, which range from twenty-four hours a day news to rock and classical music.

On August 5, 1867, President Andrew Johnson, — convinced that M. Stanton, the Secretary of War, was seeking to become the almighty dictator of the conquered South — asked for his immediate resignation, but Stanton declined to resign before the next meeting of Congress. Then the President suspended Stanton and appointed in his place the one man whom Stanton did not dare resist — General Grant. But on January 13, 1868, an angry Senate insisted on Stanton’s return. Then President Johnson who was anxious to obtain a court test of the act he believed obviously unconstitutional, again notified Stanton that he had been removed from the office Secretary of War.
The Congress charged the President with having violated the law and broken the will of the Congress.
With the President indicted by the House of Representatives, the trial for his conviction or acquittal began on March 5, 1868 in the Senate, presided over by the Chief Justice, though the actual cause for which President was being tried was missing.
But every other element of the highest court-room drama of those days was present. To each Senator the Chief Justice administered oath “... to do impartial justice”. The Chief Prosecutor for the House was General Butler, a Congressman from Massachusetts. But as the trial progressed, it became apparent, that the Republicans were not going to give the President a square deal, but intended to depose him from the White House on any grounds, real or imagined.
Telling evidence in the President’s favour was excluded as the integrity of that court was doubtful, attempted bribery and other forms of pressure were rampant. The chief interest was not in the trial of evidence, but in the tallying of votes necessary for conviction.
27 states (excluding the unrecognized Southern states) in the Union meant 54 members of the Senate and 36 votes were required to constitute the two-thirds majority necessary for conviction.
All twelve Democratic votes were lost and the 42 Republicans knew that they could afford to lose only six of their own members if Johnson were to be convicted.
But six Republicans indicated that the evidence so far introduced was not sufficient. The voting commenced …
By the time the Chief Justice reached the name of Edmund Ross, Senator of Kansas, 24 “guilties” had been pronounced, 10 more were certain and one other practically certain, so only Ross’s vote was needed to obtain the 36 votes necessary to convict the President.
When the Chief Justice put the question to him: “Mr. Senator Ross, how say you? Is the President guilty or not guilty?” every voice was still, every eye was upon the Senator from Kansas. Then Ross answered unhesitatingly, “Not guilty!”
The deed was done, the President saved, the trial as good as over and the conviction lost.
