Case studies on corruption involving journalists: Romania

This report analysis corruption caess in Romania involving journalists. The Romanian media system is of Mediterranean type, characterised by the prevalence of opinion or editorialised reporting (as opposed to neutral news), and dominated by television and high political parallelism. Romanian political parties are not steadfast when it comes to their political ideology, a fact demonstrated by their frequent policy changes, instability in alliance formation and their erring from the values and solutions forwarded by the “classical” political families to whom they claim they belong to. All the same, the media are close to certain people rather than certain ideological orientations and were not rare of the instances when an outlet changed its discourse because the person in charge changed his/her political preference.
