<< As in most news stories involving Italian politics and society, the real story is not in what is reported but in what is not reported. Supporting this analysis is the omission of the former head of Google Italia, Massimilano Magrini, being named in the lawsuit, and the acquittal of Google Italia senior product marketing manager Arvind Desikan. While most people who heard the news of the lawsuit may understand the general framework of the case, far too many do not know the personal history of Silvio Berlusconi and how much power and influence he has in the country. The omission of Massimilano Magrini and Arvind Desikan offer an insight into how Silvio Berlusconi may have helped these two men avoid being named in the lawsuit as was the case for Magrini or facing the trial as was the case for Arvind Desikan. >>
