First the harsh criticism away Facebook, then the clarifying meeting and finally the direct invitation on his newscast. This can summarize the story of the controversy, which then resolved, which took place following a post that the director of the TgLa7, Enrico Mentana, published on his official page of Facebook against the deputy of the M5s, Riccardo Ricciardi. A few hours later, Mentana corrects the post and publishes a photo that immortalizes him with the Tuscan parliamentarian, anticipating his guest at TgLa7.
The vice president of the M5s group in the House clarifies: “I simply listed what the management errors were in the Lombardy region in a health system that over the years has seen an evident impoverishment of public health and a clear loss of beds in public hospitals. Listing these things does not mean making an instrumental attack. If I had been able to finish my speech, I would have said that, for example, with Zaia in Veneto there was a different situation from that in Lombardy. Mine was certainly a political attack, but not an instrumental one. Attacking Lombard politics does not mean attacking Lombardybecause then every time I hear attacks on the government I should say that they are attacks on Italy. No”.
And he adds: “There have been errors that those who make politics must highlight. I think about resolution of the Lombardy Region on the Rsa. In my speech I also stressed the mistakes and apologies that Conte expressed in his press conference. I highlighted the gesture of apologizing for mistakes that have certainly been made in various regions and the government. And in Lombardy it will be necessary to become aware of the fact that mistakes have been made“.
Finally, the M5s deputy in Mentana who asked him what he would correct for his intervention if he came back, replies: “In the excitement of the speech, speaking of the Fiera Hospital in Milan, I spoke of ’21 million taxes and money of citizens “. In reality, it is only citizens’ money, because it was private donations. But it’s always money to manage. ”
