This is how the American media is portraying the Italian regional elections that took place yesterday in Calabria and Emilia-Romagna:
The Atlantic – An Italian Flash Mob Pushed Back Europe’s Populist Tide
New York Times – Italy Election Deals Blow to Nationalist Leader Salvini
The British press has a more accurate take:
Salvini and Lega narrowly failed to win the regional election in the American equivalent of California due to record turnout in Berkeley and San Francisco and this is being spun as a huge defeat for populism and nationalism!
