    That must have caused shrieks of frustration in some underground villain’s lair.

    So the EBU are useful for something other than Eurovision. Huh. Who knew?

    Austerity.

    Yeah, right.

    Has the word been redefined to ‘because fuck you, that’s why’, perchance?

    As a greek citizen unfortunately I cannot confirm that ERT had “independent, impartial news coverage”. Its news coverage is/was better presented than the greek private news networks but it was always the voice of the governmet as well as a place for elected officials to give well paid jobs and take votes and news coverage. There have also been rumors and strange coincideces of journalists shown the door or terminating their show for critisizing the government.

       This kind of answers my question (here) about trust in news. But could you specify: which would be the preferred news source in Greece? Who do you trust, in general? As far as trust in media goes, that is.

    Public broadcasting is always at risk from politicians. The Greeks should have learned their lesson from Big Bird/Mitt Romney
