Journal article

Abstract: « Chestiunea Zilei », a political satire, has been an inovative presence in the new Romanian media. The project, initiated by a well-known TV star, Florin Călinescu, had the purpose to give an ironic replica to the most referred events in Romanian journals. An analysis of the series broadcast in 1997 shows that a large part of the programme is dedicated to the relationship between public institutions and citizens. This research focuses on discourse of the mechanisms of the power in the post-communist Romania. The series is clearly contradicting the official version of that time, showing how Government and public institutions, instead of being in the service of the peoples, are rather maltreating them. But the comic part is linked with the reaction of the "victims" of the systems, who behave in disorder, showing no clear reaction: a passive resistance, very close to subversion, remembering the pattern of the "bad old days" of communist oppression. Here lies the mythical part of this satire: showing no clear pattern of reaction to the injustices, the program promotes the passive reproduction of repressive practices. Finally, we are pointing to the dilemma of any critical discourse analysis of the media products, arguing that in media there is neither pure subversion, nor pure submission.

Keywords: ideology, popular culture, structuralist analisys, political satyre
