“You’re saying we have to check whether or not the Commendatore is going to like each article?” a character asks Domani’s editor, an amiable hack named Simei. The response? “Of course … he’s our majority shareholder, as they say.”

I read the LA Times review of the new novel Numero Zero, by Umberto Eco. What they were describing, clearly, was OPERATION GLADIO. But that covert op cannot be mentioned in any US mainstream media publication, ever. The censorship is total. LA Times won’t touch the reality of it, and merely disregards Eco as a fanciful conspiracy theorist.

This independent review of the book explains:

Zero Issue (Numero Zero) by Umberto Eco

One of the key scenes in the novel is Colonna’s and Braggadocio’s visit to the church San Bernardino alle Ossa. The conspiracy-seeking journalist has chosen its famous ossuary as the most appropriate place to tell Colonna about Gladio and its role in a number of violent and mysterious events. The bone-encrusted chapel of San Bernardino becomes a powerful symbol of Italian history. Not just a cupboard with a skeleton or two, but a vast chamber packed with bones and skulls: it will take more than one generation to sort out the multitude of shameful secrets hidden from the public by the powers that be.
