Our country, is unfortunately, according to habit of reading daily newspapers,  in the end of the European list. In our country only around  30 percents of adult citizens are reading newspapers on a daily basis, and the total circulation of daily newspapers does not reach even million copies. (Rough) Estimates say that it is just around  800,000, and whether one likes that or not, around two thirds of that circulation fall into so-called tabloids. Otherwise, such participation of so-called tabloids is not only our peculiarity. That is so, more or less in all transitioning countries, as an inevitable consequence of expansion of space for media freedom, with all negative consequences it carries.

In recently published index of economic freedoms „Heritage Foundation“ and „Wall Street Journal“, ranking 157 states, our country with only few of them hasn't been ranked at all. In case of DR Congo, Iraq and Sudan it is clear that the reason for lack of ranking is that they are in extremely difficult political circumstances, strangled with clashes, in conditions where the system is practically not functioning. Therefore, of course, it isn't flattering or desirable to remain non-ranked together with those countries (with already yesterday's neighbors from Montenegro).
