In Italy thereís an information cupola. Itís already known, but now itís certain: demonstrated by Francesco Di Stefano of Europa 7. A bipartisan solid cupola Ė of steel. Itís no longer like in the First Republic with three TV channels that commented on the same fact in different ways. And then the citizen took the average.
No, now thereís a monopoly and the citizen is sure of falsehood. From a certain point of view, heís got more guarantees.
Follow me in this incredible story. In 1999 the concession to broadcast throughout the national territory is assigned to Europa 7 and revoked from Rete 4. By law, after SIX months, Europa 7 should then use the frequencies of Rete 4. The CENTRE RIGHT Government did nothing. Fede relaxed.
In 2002 the Constitutional Court established 31.12.2003 as the final date for Europa 7 to start up. Just in time like a conflict of interests the Berlusconi decree of 23.12.2003 extends the time. However the decree had to be signed by Ciampi the President of the Republic. He signed!
Francesco di Stefano, the director of Europa 7 decided to take the matter to the Council of State: who said he was right. Strengthened by this decision he went to the European Court of Justice who said he was right. We come to the CENTRE LEFT government.
After fearsome resistance against the judgement of the European Court of Justice by the European Commission carried out by Frattini the hearing arrives. The representative of the Italian State Advocacy presents himself to defend Rete 4 and the Gasparri law (itís true, you canít believe it but itís true!). Italy is declared to be in the wrong by the European Commission.
Gentiloni, nominated by Rutelli as Minister of Communications does not apply the decision of the ConstitutionalCourtCouncilofStateEuropeanCourtofJustice
In fact he goes beyond that and puts forward a proposed law with long and uncertain time frames that , if approved, would leave things as they are. To understand how, watch the video. Dura lex, sed rete4. RESET!

I am still thinking at this attack, it was not fair... even Bono U2 go to speak to mr Bush, there is no evil around and if you get the chance to let people understand another point of view it is your duty to try...., a litlle bit of sun and rest if it comes why not ? What did he say there ? I can imagine....straight on their face . Should he stay all by himself? And then everybody has to live.... Beppe is already overexposed .....what else do you want my dear friend Enrico d' Angelo, please really post in english ....people here want to have a bit of fresh air and quick !

Caro Beppe,

Puoi spiegarmi com'e' possibile che da anni conduci battaglie anti-establishment, anti-multinazionali, anti-capitalismo, anti-chiunque abbia il potere, ma nel 2001 eri ospite alla gita aziendale in Egitto di McKinsey, la piu' grande societa' di consulenza per l'alta direzione nel mondo che serve ed aiuta ad incrementare fatturati e profitti delle piu' grandi multinazionali italiane ed estere?

Non solo sei stato visto prendere il sole sulle bianche spiaggie di Hurghada, mangiare e bere e pisolare in un albergo a 5 stelle alle spese della suddetta azienda, ma hai anche dilettato il pubblico consulenziale con un tuo show durante la cena.

Insomma, e' come se Benigni andasse ad intrattenere privatamente la famiglia Berlusconi.

Come lo spieghi?

Cordiali saluti,
