The heat wave in Romania - a hot topic for the media

Romania has been wilting under a heat wave over the past few weeks. Dan Stanca comments on this state of emergency: "The television channels are vying with each other to get the most out of the heat. It sells well. It's what you could call a hot topic. However, what we really want now is balanced information that is appropriate and correct... During communist times there was a huge gap between propaganda and reality. There was nothing to eat, yet according to the media agricultural output was growing year by year. Nowadays there's a different kind of overstatement. The heat is the predominant topic. The pension hike and the chemical incident in Ukraine are receiving hardly any coverage... The heat has taken over the entire entertainment industry."
