Thanks to my colleague, Tim Riley, for sharing this fascinating story. It is troubling in its own right. Its backdrop? Weakened media companies worldwide. Governments, such as our own, that are increasingly classifying documents to keep them from the public and press. An Italian prime minister and media mogul who sues the country’s second-largest newspaper simply for posting a list of questions that Silvio Berlusconi has refused to answer.
Here are other links about Trafigura, again, thanks to Professor Riley.
