Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At least Murdoch got it better than the Times yesterday (which was incidently a good article).

Noemi's full declaration can be found here. The bottom line is still: What was the Council President doing with a minor after hours for so many years? What is the role of Noemi's father, a "friend" out of nowhere with a murky past?

As any commentator might hazard, why not simply offer Noemi or her father a substantial sum to go public (more than Berlusconi is willing to pay) as any newspaper elsewhere in the world would do? How much is Playboy willing to offer for a spread?

[Another sign that Italy is an upsidedown nation: Murdoch represents the free press against the Berlusconi media empire.]

Actually this article is thorough, too. It is standard anglo-saxon fair. Behind it we might make note that the Berlusconi government has been hostile to the Italian Murdoch media. Articles in the Times will get back at Berlusconi far more than local coverage on Sky.

Beyond this local reality, the Times is doing a job that the Italian media avoids doing.
