La Stampa has published an interview with Milena Gabanelli with the headline: "Io non prenderei mai i soldi dei cittadini" {I would never take money from the citizens}.
It’s easy to talk about community journalism, citizen journalism or phrases like that, in Italy tormented by the antipolitical fury, of the lack of trust in relation to the castes, of the widespread perception that journalists are quite different from guard dogs, domestic dogs, they are ever more frequently, part of power. And definitively, is it truly a better world the one in which the journalists, rather than being paid by the publishers – which in Italy are massive economic groups, or by the State – they take money directly from the citizens who read their work?
Milena Gabanelli, in her home which is the programme called Report, is famous for being a great pain in the neck, and of being a journalist who is proverbially close to her public. Not so close as to be paid by the TV viewers «I couldn’t accept this, because like that I could land up being paid by interest groups. Even citizens can form an interest group. In Report, we receive so many sponsorship proposals from campaign groups, from No-TAV, from so many civic groups. But it’s not something that I could ever tolerate, if I am paid by a campaign group and it would surely damage the interests of other citizens who are outside those interest groups».
The parties pay RAI journalists indirectly. There’s no difference between Cicchitto, a parliamentarian, and Riotta, the director of the News programme Tg1. They are both employees of Berlusconi. Milena Gabanelli, one of the few people who still does journalism, could not do so without the money from the licence fee paid by the citizens and without the benediction of Topo Gigio Veltroni.
Dear journalists, the citizens always pay, even the ones who don’t read your work or don’t watch you on TV, but the information is decided by your bosses.
The citizen who provides information via YouTube of the release of toxic substances into the Dora is a JOURNALIST. The young people who film the town council meetings are JOURNALISTS and that is why they are taken to court. The citizens of Naples who provide online information about the lies relating to the rubbish in Naples are JOURNALISTS. They have no publisher who pays them. They are not “interest groups” Information is in their hands, truth has no price, while the lie is costing ever more dearly.
From today the blog is asking you to send in links to videos relating to the topic of the post. They will be inserted in sequence underneath the post’s image. The aim is to have complete video information, YOURS, in 24 hours, the time elapsed between one post and the next.

Keeping in mind that rarely journalists bite the hand that feeds them, actually, it's not important who pays the journalist. What's important is who chooses what to report, what the journalist chooses to tell the reader and what he chooses not to tell the reader. Milena Gabanelli, works for RAI, right? She gets paid by the public. She chooses what to tube? It's a good job!-If you can get it. Perhaps she can report, for the people, a story on journalists that are kicked out of public town council meetings or taken to police stations. So how about it, Ms. Gabanelli?

SCIOPERO DEL CONSUMO DI BEVANDE ADDIZIONATE DI CO2
Da oggi iniziero' uno sciopero ad oltranza, NON consumero' piu' bevande gassate. Lo scopo e' quello di convincere il parlamento a considerare i referendum di iniziativa popolare promossi da Beppe.La mia iniziativa magari fara' ridere alcuni di Voi, ma cosa accadrebbe se questo sciopero coinvolgesse piu' cittadini?
Interrompero' lo sciopero quando avro' la possibilita' di votare liberamente.
Invito il BLOG alla Creazione di un Coordinamento di Consumatori Consapevoli.
P.s. Sono le 13.40 e da stamani non ho acquistato ne consumato euro 1,50 di bevande se fossimo un milione, le lobby del settore avrebbero perso un milione e mezzo di euro di fatturato in una sola mattina.

Il Tibet e` una regione della Cina, Dalai Lama sta facendo l'interesse degli USA ricevendo US$6.000 milioni all'anno per fomentare sommosse e separarlo dalla Cina, cosi` gli USA potranno aprire basi militari. Il Blog Tibet Libero e` una disinformazione, attenzione ai media che seguite. la storia non la fa chi la fa, ma chi la scrive. Sono un italiano che abita in Giappone dal 1995 e che ha un business in Cina, seguo la realta` direttamente.
Se non toglierete quel blog sul Tibet Libero, non seguiro` piu` il Blog di Beppe Grillo, togliendo l'iscrizione.
Spero tanto che indaghiate di piu` sull'argomento Tibet, per una informazione piu` veritiera.
Per il resto seguo tutte le altre info. sul bolg e le condivido pienamente.
