Share On 10 February 2017 Libero came out on newsstands with one of the most controversial titles of recent years. “Hot potato” addressed to the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, who was “in the eye of the storm for some municipal and personal events”. The former director of Libero, Vittorio Feltri, candidate in Milan with the Brothers of Italy, in view of the decision of the Catania judges on the defamation lawsuit that Virginia Raggi brought forward against him and Pietro Senaldi, has started a campaign for the freedom of the press. “With extreme courage on Libero we come to talk of ‘threatened journalism’. The truth is that Feltri should apologize for that shameful title that offended not only Virginia Raggi, but all women. And instead he insists. And he even appeals to the minister. Cartabia. But do you really think that vulgarity and sexism are comparable to freedom of the press? “. Thus the parliamentarians and MEPs of the 5-star Movement in a common note. “Journalists are free to express any ‘opinion’ but not to offend – they add – Moreover, with his appeal Feltri turns to a minister to oppose a possible sentence on the merits. The best thing he could do, even if with extreme delay, is to apologize to the mayor of the Italian capital and to all the women “.
