The article presents a critical review of how media news tells stories of moralsuffering related to the new Romanian diaspora (emerged after the EU enlargement). These "news stories" invite the individual spectators to become public actors of a "community of news". The author argues that due to the fact that the hosting of ethic controversies in the media has been turned intoa show, a perverse effect of narcissistic morals has become increasingly conspicuous: the regress of public indignation from the protest-like attitude towards a voyeuristic and mundane, seemingly affected, stance.
