”I’m using this space to have the possibility to reply to the attack and the insults received after V-Day and after my participation in Annozero especially on the issue of Tg1, and the polemics with Riotta that came about because of a quip in my film in which I was being ironic about the fact that Riotta, before becoming director of Tg1 had written in Il Corriere a series of articles ever more to the right to show that he was trustworthy and that he would be able to be the director of Tg1.
Riotta got angry with this quip and replied with an article in L'Espresso in which he did a minute investigation about what is true journalism, listing all the professors who taught him at university in America, (among whom was poor old Sartori and I don’t know how happy he is with his former student), about the importance of facts and objectivity.

With Santoro, then I replied once more saying that a person who directs Tg1 whom we see every evening cannot allow himself to give lessons in journalism to anyone because that is not journalism. Tg1 is not at the service of the citizens but of the politicians who chose him and of the journalists who talk. When presenting evidence, I said that for example, the day of V-Day itself, he gave a ridiculously small space to it: 29 seconds.

”Yesterday evening a demonstration organised by Beppe Grillo, the so-called V-Day in support of the popular initiative law for a clean parliament. According to the organisers 300,000 people are said to have signed. A demonstration that took place in many Italian cities. Political reactions came immediately: for Minister Bersani we need to reflect on the witness to discomfort; “it is a demonstration that we should be ashamed of – said Pierferdinando Casini – since Marco Biagi has been insulted and yet he should be made a saint.”


They didn’t send a camera crew, and in the days that followed when he wanted to attack Grillo with all his strength, he had to use images from EcoTV. That evening the Tg1 news was made up of the usual little snippets from the politicians: Prodi who was talking from a conference in Bari, Berlusconi from I don’t know where, a long service on underwater divers who were in the process of beating a Guinness record with reporters and all the rest. Pretty ridiculous, a service that was anyway shown as a series on the evenings that followed: evidently some sponsor of these underwater divers got this slot on Tg1. After my piece on Tg1, they read out a communication in which they rejected the crude insults from the variety girl.
”Guzzanti is mistaken: there are true journalists in the RAI”, says Carlo Verna, leader of the USIGRAI union. Colleagues of the redaction committee of Tg1 reject the crude insults from the variety girl against the journalists who are committed to providing information honestly.”
A communication to which I have in turn replied, but it wasn’t published anywhere. I said that since there are so many good journalists in the RAI, they should allow them to do the work. This should be the work of the trades union, that is however not doing it: since it is a left wing union it is defending a director who was placed there by the Centre Left and is not doing his duty. This is the proof that when particular criticisms are made backed up with evidence the only effect is to receive a beating without the right of reply.
In il Corriere della Sera, of which Riotta was once deputy director, there was an article against my film of very poor quality in which they talked only of low box office receipts and they were celebrating the fact that the film had not had great success at the box office, something that could also be questioned, anyway there’s nothing to be happy about if a great film defined by Tullio Kezich in il Corriere della Sera as a masterpiece, is seem by just a few people.
The article was signed by a journalist who normally just writes two-line articles. Obviously no serious journalist wanted to write it.
By the way this film, “Le ragioni dell’Aragosta” (The reasons of the Lobster), talks about what is happening today: the experience of the persons who try to do something in the emptiness of politics. It goes on the story that some actors start helping Sardinian fishermen, an invented story, but reasonable because people contact us for very different reasons, and pretending, we really helped them: normally in the Sardinian financial budget there is approximately 5-6 million euro destined to fishing while this year they have been allocated 41!
Therefore only pretending to do something, a real result has been produced. On this we should think.
If reasoned critics are done, if democratic activities as organizing and collecting signatures the answer is always and only repressive.“

Please, can you publish on TV usual frauds made by Poste Italiane, expecially through his courier SDA, against his clients?
I have, as many others, something interesting to say

Ti prego salva Firenze!!! La Tramvia e' la nostra Val Di Susa !!!

Firenze, 18 ottobre 2007 - "Ora basta. Nel viale Morgagni i lavori (bloccati da due giorni dai comitati salva-alberi, ndr) andranno avanti — batte il pugno sul tavolo il vicesindaco Beppe Matulli — perché quella in corso è una protesta pretestuosa contro la tramvia che non ha niente a vedere con gli alberi". E non si ferma qui l’assessore, ma denuncia anche "le clamorose falsità annunciate in decine di manifesti appesi sugli alberi del viale Giannotti e firmati dal comitato proreferendum contro la tramvia, che annunciavano l'imminente taglio delle piante".

Detto più chiaramente: il tempo del confronto e delle spiegazioni è finito. D’ora in avanti chi ferma i cantieri se ne dovrà assumere tutte le responsabilità civili e penali. Compresa quella di rifondere i danni alle imprese per i tempi contrattuali non rispettati. "Ho partecipato a 94 incontri pubblici — si arrabbia Matulli — senza contare il lavoro svolto dai quartieri e la comunicazione effettuata sui progetti della tramvia. Adesso però è nostro preciso dovere andare avanti con la realizzazione dei progetti approvati e finanziati e per i quali, nel 2005, sono stati firmati i contratti. Non possiamo sprecare il denaro dei cittadini".

Ne consegue che, per la ripresa dei lavori, non spetta più al Comune intervenire in viale Morgagni. L'area del cantiere è assegnata all'impresa che, da venerdì scorso, ha sporto denuncia per l'interruzione dei lavori. Quindi è la questura che ora si occupa della vicenda e può decidere di intervenire. Palazzo Vecchio, nonostante l’occupazione dell’albero, ha deciso di tirarsi fuori dalla faccenda. "Non ci sono — ha ribadito Matulli — motivazioni valide per bloccare il cantiere. Nel luglio scorso, quando decisi di sospendere i lavori per dare maggior informazioni sul progetto, perché si erano diffuse notizie imprecise e inattendibili, e non me ne pento. Ma da allora abbiamo fornito tutti i chiarimenti possibili con tutti gli strumenti a disposizione. La protesta di questi giorni è pretestuosa: si difendono alberi, che tra l'altro saranno ripiantati, ma in realtà si è contrari alla tramvia tout court. E soprattutto si continua a dire che non c’è stata informazione, ma questo non è vero".

Matulli però ci ha tenuto a specificare che "quando i cantieri andranno a interessare altre zone della città, daremo tutte le informazioni necessarie e saremo disponibili per gli approfondimenti. Ma su viale Morgagni è davvero arrivato il momento di dire basta". Toni se possibile ancor più indignati quelli sui cartelli attaccati nottetempo agli alberi del viale Giannotti, annunciando l’imminente taglio degli alberi per far posto ai binari della tramvia.

"Sono stati attaccati con il nastro adesivo sul tronco delle piante — ha detto Matulli — causando, come mi ha poi spiegato l'assessore all'ambiente Claudio Del Lungo, anche danni alla corteccia. E siamo di fronte a un clamoroso falso". Il vicesindaco, infatti, sostiene che "siamo ancora molto lontani dai cantieri: il lotto 2 della linea 3, che porterà la tramvia a Bagno a Ripoli e che dovrebbe passare in viale Giannotti e viale Europa, è una prospettiva concreta che ancora non ha finanziamento. Inoltre su viale Giannotti e viale Europa è stata già realizzata la busvia, proprio come anticipazione della tramvia, e questo non ha comportato alcun taglio di piante". Al contrario, ha precisato Del Lungo, "in viale Giannotti nell'inverno scorso sono stati piantati 14 alberi e il Comune ha imposto a Publiacqua di utilizzare in tutti i suoi interventi le tecnologie più avanzate per non danneggiare le radici". Il comitato anti-tramvia — ha commentato Matulli — "è sceso al livello più basso. Chi si erge a paladino degli alberi in realtà non ne ha nessun rispetto".

What you want?
Those idiots must cover their asses somehow, isn't it?

Well done Sabina, and keep going.

The fact that they attack you, is a sure sign that you are doing something right, and bothering people who do not like the truth.

The fact that they can only resort to character assassination, like they do with Beppe, and must carefully avoid the facts, and any truly honest debate, tells us a lot about them and their real agendas.

In the past they could do so without fear of being exposed, as people would hear only what they chose to say, and the other side would never be allowed an honest chance to reply, ( as we are "free" and live in "democracies" ) and so people could be easily manipulated with lies, that is why controlling the medias is so important, as long as people are so naive to believethat what they are fed everyday are true facts, ( and all the facts ), being reported by honest people; now the internet is allowing the truth to come out through channels their masters do not control, and allows a voice to people who do not have any interest at keeping the truth quiet, nor have the millions to buy the medias, so that people will hear only what is convenient to them, nor have any masters to be afraid of.

That is why they are working increasingly hard to push through laws to "regulate the internet", as always for "our protection" ;-)
What is the point of banning people like Beppe from all the government propaganda channels, so that people will
never hear what people like him have to say, and will only hear the lies which
powerful interests use to manipulate us everyday, if then people like him find an alternative way to reach those same people, outside their control, and make them become aware of how, and how much they have been manipulated and lied to ?

Keep up the good work, the truth is on V-Day side.
not on theirs, and they know iit, that is why they are so afraid, they fear that V-Day, might bring about Pay-Day,
the day when they will be held accountable for what they do, to the italian citizens which they are supposed to serve, instead of doing whatever they like, behind our backs, without
fear of having to face the law ;-)
