The daily newspaper Gândul (The Thought] was founded in 2005 when some of the editors of the Adevărul newspaper fell out with its publisher over political issues. Gândul committed to a centre-left stance. At first the editors tried to finance the newspaper on their own but in 2006 it was acquired by Romanian media entrepreneur Adrian Sârbu, who still owns it today. Since 2012 the content has been published online only.
