A real episode from the prolonged war of words between Bulgaria's finance minister Simeon Djankov and members of Bulgaria's Academy of Sciences, which has warned it may stop delivering weather forecasts over lack of money for salaries

Simeon Djankov: If the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology (part of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) is shut down, I will check the weather forecast on CNN.

Georgi Korchev, head of the institute: CNN does not make forecasts. CNN broadcasts the information it receives from global weather centers, including Bulgaria.
