Start-ups Fill Vacuum In Greek Media Crisis
The media have been among the hardest hit sectors over the last three years of the economic crisis in Greece, reports America's National Public Radio. Some 4,000 journalists are said to have lost their jobs due to the closure of several newspapers and TV outlets. Others are on the verge of closing. And NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports that people believe the country's news media have failed to cover the crisis properly, partly due to the close connections between owners, politicians and financiers.
