Telecom Italia Media announces that it will present an appeal to the Lazio Regional Court (TAR) as quickly as possible, with an urgent request for suspension against resolution 25/10/CSP regarding the disciplinary action in the matter of “Political Communication and equality of access to means of information” (the so called “Par condicio” law) that equalizes special report programs to political communication.

Telecom Italia Media, in fact, believes that the application of the above mentioned law is not workable and completely distorts the editorial content of La7.

As a precautionary measure, Telecom Italia Media has decided not to deal with themes attached to the electoral campaign of the 2010 elections in its special report programs. 

To this end, Telecom Italia Media has sent a communication regarding the application of the Agcom resolution to all interested parties to regulate the themes discussed and the behaviour of those invited onto these programs.
