ABC raps on complaint over allegation of death plot

ABC News Tuesday accused the CIA of trying ''to suppress vigorous reporting.'' The CIA last week asked the FCC to investigate whether a story broadcast by the network in September violated the broadcasting fairness doctrine, and to seek ''corrective actions'' if it found that they did. The Sept. 19 and 20 reports alleged that the CIA plotted to kill Honolulu businessman Ronald Rewald.

The day the CIA filed its complaint, ABC's World News Tonight broadcast a ''clarification,'' saying the network could not corroborate a charge by a Honolulu jail guard, that he was directed by the CIA to kill Rewald. ''We have no reason to doubt the CIA's denial,'' ABC said in part.
