RE:     Re: <nettime> Italy's Power Trinity: Media, Politics and Mafia


Thanks for picking on this
You are right. Also the interview with the judge was later published by
l'Espresso, in 94.
This still does not explain the lack of public awareness about certain
facts, and how people do not talk about their doubts, they do not raise 
questions where they should I am hypercritical of the media system in the 
country,  mainly because the lack of clarity and the tendency to accept 
things 'the way they are', and obvious collusion sometimes at the expenses 
of freedom of information. that's all

The book of Marco Travaglio, the Italian journalist of newspaper La
Repubblica is sold out, not only now, but nearly all the time. (is it
Berlusconi that buys all the books? i wonder!)
It is absolutely not the first book on the case. Already around 1994 two
books on the issue appeared: 'Gli affari del presidente' (the president's
affairs) and 'Signor TV' both on Berlusconi and the question: where did he
get his mountains of money from? (before the man got so incredibly rich he
was a pianoplayer in bars...). 
The books i mentioned here were written by Giovanni Ruggeri, an old
journalist from Milan. It seems that the Travaglio book on Berlusca has the
same input as the ones from Ruggeri. It is not really a 'story', the book
is made out of lots of documents used in the trials against Berlusconi.
(mafia, corruption, etc). It is strange that nobody ever mentions the older
books, that also consist of those documents, nothing new under the sun. 
I didn't read the Travaglio book, because it is sold out all the time...
but i know the older books on the case. Berlusconi is there described as a
P-2 project, and P-2 were the powerful freemasons. Berlusconi can also be
seen as the follow-up for Craxi, in the light of the freemason projects. 
Now in Italy everyone thinks that Berlusconi will win the elections in May.
But why do people vote for a madman? That's the most important question!
