    Mr.Berluskoni in fact controls the whole Italian TV, State-run one as a PM, and main private channel as an owner.

    Is it a democracy? Is it a good example for new-born Russian democracy?
     
  2. Russia is not a democracy but a Mafiaocracy
     
  3. Is Italy a democracy ? yes, is it a particulary healthy one? most likely not, should Russia emulate Italy? I doubt they could end up worse than they are now if they tried;)
     
  4. Italy is the best democracy money can buy....... especially with backhanders 8O
     
  5. You are absolutely right (and not only Russia).
