Alina Mungiu-Pippidi: “10 for Romania”, a Dangerous Scheme (

România Liberă/Hotnews – December 12, 2006

I’ve got major issues with “10 for Romania” a show by Realitatea TV, a young and dynamic TV station authored by Mihai Tatulici, a TV professional who often does necessary shows that the market lacks, such as the one about mayors who don’t uphold the law. It’s a whole different kettle of fish when it comes to Ten for Romania, whose concept is flawed from the get-go.

If it were a mere popularity ranking for popular professions (football players, actors, TV stars), I’d have nothing against it. They have those everywhere. The problem is the show’s ambition, to establish Romania’s elites for the coming ten years no less.
