In this study, we examine the main aspects of the Balkan wars, as they are reflected in the main daily and weekly Romanian publications. The journalists were sent in the capital cities of the Balkan countries to take the information directly from the local journalists and politicians. We consider the national newspapers of the mass-circulation Universul, Adevărul, and Dimineaţa, and the party-support newspapers Viitorul and Epoca. We considered useful to introduce in our analysis the publications of the Greek and Aromanian communities of Romania that were following with great interest the development of events that changed the geopolitical configuration of South-Eastern Europe: To Ethnos, I Iris, Peninsula Balcanică, Glasul Victimelor.
