Church TV in Romania

In addition to its own daily newspaper, radio station, publishing house and printers, Romania's Orthodox Church now has its own television channel. Bogdan Pacurar comments: "Although he hasn't been in office for a month yet, Patriarch Daniel has already revealed the kind of management skills that would be the envy of any media mogul. ... But what's really surprising is that an institution that is so geared towards the future is at the same time being so secretive about its past. The Church refuses to recognise a report compiled by the Council for Studying Securitate Archives (CNSAS) according to which Metropolitan Nicolae Corneanu worked as a Securitate spy for 41 years. What's to deny? Nothing. Yet the Church is now setting up a special commission subordinate to the Synode solely for the purpose of re-examining the files. It now has the complete range of media at its disposal, which it can use to pronounce its own brand of truth."
