Mediaset lawsuit against anti-plagiarism observatory has been archived
In a 2010 article on the website, the coordinator Giovanni Panunzio accused the TV show Striscia la Notizia not to investigate the magicians advertised by Mediaset
The investigating judge of Cagliari Lucia Perra filed on March 23 the order for dismissal of charges for aggravated defamation against Giovanni Panunzio, national coordinator of the Anti-plagiarism Observatory, sued by RTI for some statements regarding the satirical news program Striscia la Notizia.
Panunzio has often accused Striscia la Notizia of using double standards in dealing with the issue of the scams by magicians and charlatans, avoiding investigating those sponsored by Mediaset. In particular, on 27 May 2010 he wrote on the website antiplagio.org that “Striscia forgets to denounce the charlatans belonging to its own parish, advertised in well over 200 pages of teletext onMediaset. It is not an exaggeration to say that part of the compensation of the authors and conductors of Striscia la Notizia comes from the proceeds of the would-be magicians.”
