The journalists control what gets covered in the news.
If the President, government wants to jail them, they would just need to ignore the President. Instead of covering any presidential, State dept, or other press conference, only cover the opposition's press conferences.
Cut of their voice completely so long an any journalist is in prison.
They are just trying to save us from our own silly decisions, and "save the children" even more so. If you simply surrender to complete government control your life will be so much better. Drink the Kool-Aid...drink the Kool-Aid, it won't hurt you.
Romania can prevail by using the USA model of control. Send in the EPA for weekly inspections and fines, shutting down production when "necessary". Followed by OSHA weekly inspections and fines, shutting down production when "necessary". Followed by the IRS taxing production at 75% of the metal produces...whatever is left can be the company's profit.
Romania is having a problem because they are trying to be honest and above board.
