Changeover in Mediaset's flagship news bulletin

Interesting article from on Lamberto Sposini leaving Tg5. The article is interesting not for Sposini's departure, but rather for more evidence on the politico-electoral cycle which afflicts Italian news media. 3rd paragraph down:

'The editorial assembly "made clear the concerns raised during the meeting, amongst which the clear knowledge that a historic period for this news programme has finished, and the uncertainty that surrounds its future"'

Its unclear whether the historic period refers to a founder of Tg5 leaving, or the end of the government of Tg5's ultimate patron. Perhaps this is the time when differences over Mediaset's treatment of the elections will come to the fore.
