This series of articles investigates, in depth, these longstanding trends in Greek media, a situation which has been worsening in recent years, in the midst of Greece’s severe economic and political crisis.

The portions of this investigative series of articles which have so far been published in Truthout include:

In addition, this series will be translated into French, with the following portions having been published so far:
