Rete 4 (also known as "Retequattro") is an Italian television station belonging to the Mediaset network. It's an Italian private/commercial TV channel. The news bulletin editor, since foundation in 1992, is a famous Italian journalist named Emilio Fede who is also well known for his biased right-wing leaning political ideals, especially in favour of Silvio Berlusconi, main shareholder of Mediaset.

Legality of Rete 4 is disputed, due to the case of the Europa 7 Italian network, which in 1999 got the licenses to broadcast on the frequences of Rete 4 (causing it migrating to satellite television), but never could broadcast to some "save-laws" (later considered unfair and unconstitutional) of Berlusconi's government (note that Berlusconi is the owner of the Mediaset Group, which Rete 4 belongs to). Moreover, the European Court of Justice recently sentenced that the Italian broadcasting system does not abide the EU law and therefore Rete 4 should give up its frequencies to Europa 7. Despite all the qualified bodies ruled in favor of Europa 7, Rete 4 is still broadcasting through its usual frequencies with the "placet" of the Italian government, currently lead by Berlusconi. Up to now, Europa 7 is continuing its battle for its broadcasting rights, and may start broadcasting on mid 2008, hypotised time of migration of Rete 4 on digital satellite and terrestrial television. However, currently there are signals that Berlusconi's government will try to reiterate Berlusconi's property on Rete 4.
