Italian State TV cuts Roland Garros women’s final

The winner Maria Sharapova is unimpressed.

As incredible as it may seem, the first sport channel of the Italian State TV interrupted the Roland Garros women’s final to air a relatively obscure match of Italian football.

The State TV main trade union and the channel editors labeled the interruption as a “gaffe”, a “horror”, a “shame” and “an enormous mistake”.

The atmosphere is tense within the State TV after the budget cuts ruled by the Government triggered a controversial and divisive strike, forbidden by the competent independent Authority and called back by some of the trade unions involved.
