Professor Andrei Marga, writer Mircea Cartarescu, historian Vladimir Tismaneanu, actor Ion Caramitru and writer Mircea Dinescu claim the first positions in a ranking of the 30 most publicised intellectuals in Romania. The ranking was made by MediaIQ based on the monitoring of 780 Romanian media sources, between February 15 and August 20. Andrei Marga, rector of the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca and former minister of Education, boasted the most frequent appearances in the media in the past six months – 385 appearances in 77 media sources, mostly in the written, print and online, press. Cartarescu, deemed by the press “the best-selling and most widely-translated contemporary Romanian author”, made 325 appearances in the past six months, in 97 media sources. Historian Tismaneanu ranks third, with 319 appearances, followed by actor Caramitru (308) and writer Dinescu (304). Positions 6 to 10 are claimed, as follows, by Andrei Plesu, Horia Roman Patapievici, Gabriel Liiceanu, Razvan Theodorescu and Dan Puric (under 300 appearances each).
