Dirty tricks used in frenzied attempts at containing an increasingly damaging situation for #Greek PM @kmitsotakis’ govt: major #Greek news portal @in_gr uses photoshopped image of former PM, opposition leader @atsipras, with #Lignadis, the disgraced former director of
the National Theatre who now stands accused of multiple counts of rape involving minors.
The piece uses a sensationalist headline to make its point & places the disclaimer about the doctored image as a *footnote* explaining it’s a fake but that it “might have been true”!
Such blatant disregard for journalistic ethics & standards in the service of sensationalism & the scramble to construct a plausible narrative, speaks volumes as to the perceived damage inflicted to the govt’s image and signals a no-holds-barred fight to defend the inner circle.

It feels distinctly like a watershed moment for #Greece.
What started as the whiff of a scandal has now escalated into a full-blown political crisis at the most inopportun moment, after a string of PR disasters involving PM himself & whilst the lockdown-fatigued public
mood is neither generous nor charitable.
Celebrated theatre personality N. Lignadis, the (now ex) director of the National Theatre, a direct appointment to the position and an integral part of the Athenian elite is first publicly accused of, and later arrested and charged
with multiple counts of rape inv. minors.
Minister Lina Mendoni who appointed him to the post after cancelling the hiring process that had already been set in motion by her predecessor, is accused of dragging her feet in the matter. She calls a disastrous press conference

Thread on staggering #media_manipulation scandal involving the #Greek public broadcaster @ERTsocial.
Greek journalist @ChristosXanthak broke the story in a tweet a short while ago
It seems that @ERTsocial ran a report about the PM’s tour of the island of Ikaria yesterday during its noon bulletin -after the uproar and general outcry however, the following notice was posted in the Production Room to ensure this “mistake” was not repeated.
The note reads:
To fellow producers
We don’t run (a) photo(s) or video of @kmitsotakis on the veranda of the Stefanadis residence (lunch) in Ikaria.
Also, we only run footage of Lignadis on his own, not with others.
Thank you”
