In the book called "White Fang" by Jack London each night a wolf lures a sled dog into the forest. Whichever dog follows his scent is led a long way away from the fire and is devoured by a pack of wolves waiting for him in the snow. In the period after the elections, the TV presenters, full time employees of the PDL and the PDminusL, use a similar technique. With a charming voice, their aim is to publicly tear to pieces anyone who is a supporter of the M5S or an M5S elected representative and show the public at home that the person being interviewed is in this order: ignorant, unprepared, out of this world, shabby, naive, of diminished responsibility, untrustworthy, and incompetent. Or they try to demonstrate the theory that the person being interviewed is close to the PDminusL, to the government, or a rebel in relation to Grillo’s incoherent way of thinking, or sensible, and like Bersani. In either case, the TV host sucks the (presumed or real - but more frequently just presumed) 5 Star person like an ice lolly, he chews them like chewing gum, and then spits them out, happy with his badmouthing task. He’s paid by the parties to do that.
The fury of the TV channels in relation to the M5S has reached limits never before seen in the history of the Republic. It’s devastating, morbid, sick, monstrous and is perhaps getting beyond the control of its instigators, as was seen with the mad assault at the Hotel Universe in Rome where the new M5S parliamentarians had a meeting last Monday. Frenzied Scenes. This is no longer reporting, but a form of continual vilification, of defamation, of attack, even physical, against a new non-corrupt and peaceful political entity. The TV channels are in the hands of the parties, this is an anomaly to be removed as soon as possible. The Seven TV Stepsisters are not providing news, but propaganda. It’s essential to create a single public TV channel without connections to the parties and to politics and without advertising. The other two that are left can be sold to the market. What’s needed is a review of the contracts for the private TV concessions and the definition of an ethical code to be followed. On Monday the M5S parliamentary groups elected two leader/spokespersons for the next three months: Roberta Lombardi for the Lower House, and Vito Crimi for the Senate. They are authorised to speak after holding discussions and sharing content with the other members of the group. Watch out for the wolves!
