The director of Rai insights, during the FdI event, used the term “we” to refer to Meloni’s party, defining himself as militant. Then he argued with Elly Schlein, without naming her, for having declined the debate. Pd: “Unacceptable. Apologize or resign.” While the CEO of Rai, Roberto Sergio, asked Corsini for a report on what happened

There is controversy over the speech by Paolo Corsini, director of Rai insights, at Atreju, the Fratelli d’Italia event. Corsini, on December 14, during the event used the term “we” to refer to Meloni’s party, defining himself as militant, and asking “How is our party?”. Then he argued with Elly Schlein, without naming her, for having declined the debate: “They preferred to deal with how to dress and what colors to use, rather than discussing each other”. The public service manager’s declaration of party affiliation was not liked by the opposition, who asked for his resignation due to incompatibility with the role. While the CEO of Rai, Roberto Sergio, asked Corsini for a report on what happened to Atreju and the full video of his speech, to evaluate possible sanctions.

Corsini: “Words taken out of context, I apologize”

Corsini, for his part, explained: “When you extrapolate words from the context in which they were expressed, you always run the risk of lending yourself to easy criticism and exploitation. Yesterday I was invited to moderate the introductory debate of an event which, in these days, presents to the public a parterre of guests and personalities of the highest level. In this context, I am truly sorry that some of my sentences have generated misunderstandings”.

Money: “Rai journalists must be impartial”

“I believe that a public service journalist must always guarantee an equidistant attitude, regardless of the context in which he operates”, the comment on the affair from the president of Rai, Marinella Soldi. “Rai information operators – continues President Soldi – are required to exercise their profession in the name of pluralism and impartiality, essential to help citizens form an opinion free from prejudice, to the maximum advantage of democracy and Village”.

The Democratic Party on the attack

“His programs are going badly and what does he do instead of working in Rai to try to revive them? It is up to Atreju not to be a simple presenter but to attack Schlein. We have never seen a director of Rai who attacks a party initiative by the leader of the opposing party as if she were a militant. Unacceptable. Apologize or resign”, instead ask the members of the Democratic Party of the Rai Supervisory Commission.
