Posted: 2/18/2013 | By: Sylvia Poggioli | NPR
Three years of spiraling economic crisis in Greece have devastated
every sector of the economy. The Greek media are among the hardest hit.
Many newspapers and TV outlets have closed or are on the verge, and some
4,000 journalists have lost their jobs.
Many people believe
the country's news media have failed to cover the crisis — and lost
credibility along the way. And many Greek journalists acknowledge that a
massive conflict of interest sooner or later had to explode.
