The perpetual plot machine - - Marco Travaglio
"MAFIOCRAZIA", the THIRD Passaparola DVD is now available
”Good day to you all.
Today we will present a few news items that you will have found in the newspapers falsified, turned upside-down or in fact not mentioned at all. They are all news items that belong to a new tendency of Italian journalism. Always with the ever rarer exceptions that are due, that is, that if a trial finished up badly for a powerful man it’s not talked about or it is trivialised. If it finishes well for the powerful man who comes out OK, then there is great emphasis on it.
It’s talked about with a huge clamour and excitement; but on the other hand, the trials against the poor souls can only go one way: badly for them, because if it goes well for them there is a great hullabaloo and immediately there’s a clamour against the easy-release-from-prison, easy-absolutions and do-good-ism.
Anyway it’s what always happens when there’s a powerful man on trial: the trials against the powerful regularly end up with furious polemics about the magistrates, both when the trial ends up with a “not guilty” verdict, or with a “guilty” verdict or when they are sent for trial.
The perpetual plot machine
Why do I say this? Because they have invented the perpetual plot machine. I’ll give you an example: if a powerful man is under investigation and is sent for trial, there you get the polemics about the levelling of the judge who is siding with the ideas of the public prosecutor and thus it is necessary to make sure there are separate careers because the fact that the judge considers the public prosecutor to be right, indicates that the magistrates have been plotting together. That happens if there is a guilty verdict or if the person is sent for trial, basically if there is a negative outcome for the powerful man.
If a powerful man is investigated and then the case is dismissed, or he is found to be not guilty, then there are polemics because he has been persecuted for years and now finally a judge has recognised the truth, and has brought down the hypothesis of the public prosecutor. That is the proof that there was a plot."
