Romania: 50% of news must be positive, says law proposal

Last week, the Romanian Senate unanimously voted a law proposal forcing media to distribute 50% of positive news.

According to its instigators, the law will help to fight against “the extraordinary harms of negative news and their irreversible effects on health and people’s lives.”

The Senate wishes that TV and radio news programs feature as much ‘negative’ as ‘positive’ news.

The Romanian’s National Council for Audiovisual broadcasting is to validate the law – under which it will have the responsibility to decide what constitutes good or bad news.
