Submission + - Portuguese PM caught on taps; media manipulation

Jorl17 writes: Portugal is going through a rough time. With PM Engenheiro Sócrates being accused of trying to buy the silence of part of the media. TVI, a Portuguese TV Station, had a usually anti-PM news segment canceled. Rumors said that PM had pressured so that this would happen. Now the content of taps belonging to the "Hidden Face" (Face Oculta) case (a case of corruption in the government) is being continuously published in weekly newspaper "Sol". Out today, the latest edition sold out in a matter of hours...and it is said to have been published against law.

I don't know about you, but I don't get how, even knowing part of this, the Portuguese people re-elected Engenheiro Sócrates.
