GREECE: Protest of Greece’s media syndicators, professional journalists - Police brutality (VIDEO)


 

This isn’t the largest protest of recent months but is the first one so far this year with specific intent to show that not all Greek journalists are aligned with the political directives of the pro-austerity coalition government on the country’s broadcast media.


These are some of Greece’s most prolific media syndicators and dexterous professional journalists. They are standing outside the heavily guarded MEGA CHANNEL, an established private news network. They say the news content of this and other news outlets is partial, bigoted and prejudiced against the current anti-austerity struggle and the social and political complications therein. 

We are told that MEGA CHANNEL is favored by both the pro-austerity government and the Greek private banking system. Earlier this month, leftist main opposition party SYRIZA said MEGA CHANNEL concluded a 98 million euro bond loan from four private banks in return for explicit support of their role in shaping the country’s economy. 

Liberal syndicated journalists have been at the forefront of the social and political efforts to crack austerity policies in Greece and have held hundreds of strikes and protests in recent months against corporate greed, elitism and political favoritism in the country’s media. 

There is increasing discontent among media professionals that mainstream news outlets impair the significance of worker’s struggle against austerity policies by airing what they say is a distorted view of workers' struggle and leftist syndication. Public opinion is now clashing the state opinion and hopes to overwhelm any state-endorsed campaign of misinformation.
