Bloomberg: This Far-Right Italian Politician Is Relying on Social Media to Spread Her Message

Bloomberg: This Far-Right Italian Politician Is Relying on Social Media to Spread Her Message. “[Giorgia] Meloni, 41, is the leader of the Brothers of Italy, a political party with fascist roots that is a junior partner in the center-right coalition assembled by media mogul and former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to contest the March 4 national elections. A Bloomberg compilation of polls has the grouping at 36 percent as of Feb. 9—in the lead, but short of the 40 percent needed to form a government. And while support for Meloni’s party hovers at 5 percent, the congresswoman’s social media savvy could boost the coalition’s chances of winning power.”
