Pulling the plug: According to MediaChannel, Italy's largest power utility--a state-owned entity--pulled the plug on two left-wing radio stations planning coverage of the massive protests around Bush's visit with the pope. Organizers say as many as 250,000 activists hit the streets. "It is something outrageous because while [Italy's] communication law recognizes the important role of local broadcasting, this role is taken away in a special day with great need of information and communication" Cynthia D'Ulizia the director of Radio Città Aperta said.
