Well although I have no way of knowing the audience numbers for Romanian TV I have come across an organization which tracks sales for printed publications. In their report for 2011 (the most recent available) you can see that Click! easily comes in first place with over 166,000 daily readers.
In comparison, the number one “hard news” paper (for much more of my take on the print media, see here) is Romania Libera, with only 39,000 daily readers. According to this report these numbers come from multiplying statistics from a survey of over 12,000 people.
So there you go, assuming these numbers are correct then four times as many Romanians read the gossip tabloid as do hard news, which I guess sort of confirms what I observed a year ago. Looks like I was wrong and Alison Mutler was right, as much as that pains me to say it. I truly am in the wrong line of work, writing all these real articles instead of fucking around like more popular bloggers or pimping articles to the AP after reading Click!.
