Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow

Italy: Five Star leader lashes out at the press, threatens to cut funds

The deputy prime minister called public newspapers “propaganda to defend the interests of a narrow elite.” The newspapers that receive some public funding are “polluting public debate, and they are doing it with public money.” Di Maio said that he was preparing a bill to stop tax money going to print media. He also maintained that by receiving public funds and gaining money from advertising, newspapers were  making “double” the money at the citizens’ expense. Source Deutsche Welle
