Rome, March 7 - Former comedian Beppe Grillo, whose
5-Star Movement (M5S) emerged as the kingmaker in inconclusive
February 24-25 Italian national elections - on Thursday took
swipes at Italy's media industry, saying that attacks against
his movement had "passed limits never before seen in the history
of the Republic".
The media's attacks against M5S were "disconcerting,
pathological, sick (and) monstrous (and) were getting out of the
control of their instigators," Grillo said in his blog, the main
channel he uses to communicate with his fans, and now voters.
In particular, Grillo singled out the media's "crazed
assault on the Universo Hotel in Rome" where newly elected M5S
deputies gathered Monday as something which was "no longer
information, but continuous contempt, defamation, attacks - even
physical - against a new, incorrupt and peaceful political
force".
Separately, in his blog Grillo also called for a breakup of
Italian state-owned television RAI and for new regulations on
private broadcasters.
RAI should sell off two of its three main free-to-air
channels, he said. "It is indispensable to create only one
public television broadcaster, without any ties to the parties
and politics and free of advertising. The other two can be sold
to the market".
Commenting on the country's private broadcasters - the main
three of which are owned by former premier Silvio Berlusconi,
head of the People of Freedoms (PdL) party - Grillo said: "It is
necessary to also review private broadcasters' concession
contracts and create a code of conduct to which they must
adhere".
