Good news for Italy's media landscape

The news programme on Italian private channel LA7, which is run by Telecom Italia, yesterday had a viewer rating of over 10 percent. Since the beginning of the month Enrico Mentana, former star presenter on the Berlusconi channels, has anchored the programme. This success shows that the time is ripe for major changes in Italy's media landscape, writes the liberal daily La Stampa: "LA7's new news programme has swept over the swamp of informational programmes with the force of a tornado. ... A sign that above all the younger, more demanding generation of viewers has long been yearning for this fresh breeze. ... Mentana's recipe for success puts the focus on politics. This seems paradoxical, but as soon as you switch to the news programmes of the main channels (RAI 1 and Canale 5) it's clear that politics, of all things, is missing here. ... Mentana has put politics right at the top of the news again. He has restored the former hierarchy ... and immediately scored a success in doing so."
