România Liberă (Free Romania) was one of the leading party papers during the communist era. In the revolutionary days of December 1989 the paper immediately went into opposition against the post-communist government. It has kept its old name. România Liberă had over a million readers shortly after the revolution, but since then its circulation has fallen dramatically. Initially WAZ Media Group held shares in the paper but it withdrew in 2010, leaving the publisher in the hands of entrepreneur Dan Grigore Adamescu. The multimillionaire died in prison in 2017, while serving a sentence of several years for corruption. After his death, the newspaper launched a campaign against former politicians and the accounting firm KMPG, accusing them of destroying the Adamescu empire. In October 2017, half of the editors left the newspaper. Medien Holding, which owns the newspaper, filed for bankruptcy in late 2017.
