Too bad, I guess the revolution will not be televised.
Maybe things are about to get real serious in Greece
Try this link, maybe not the same but you will get the idea of why they are petrified of the media of any kind.

Greek here... All public tv broadcasters, in every country in the world are controlled by the government, They are not at all independent and the voice of the people, as mainstream media around the world say.
I think it was a move made to get the attention of the international mainstream media and manipulate opinions.
It was so corrupted that only if you had strong ''connections'' with the governing party you could get a job there. and since the people paid for everything, they gave them huge paychecks and redicusly expensive shows, and they were not by any meaning independent, just the mouthpiece of the gov,
Their journalists job so many years was to justify the acts of the gov, and not making other voices heard.
They will open again in 3 months time, with much more propaganda, BUT with all this attention, they will have a better ''image'' and they will be taken more seriously from the same people.
You all remember the riots and police beating ordinary innocent people, just because they were protesting.
They never showed anything like that in the news, (all the videos and footage were from private tv stations) they always protected police and gov crimes.
THEY WERE NOT THE FREE VOICE OF PEOPLE, JUST LOADS OF PROPAGANDA AND MIND CONTROLLING BS
that will feed us when they open again, but with a better image this time (since all this drama about ''the voice of people'' that is spread around the worlds mainstream media.
The Gov knows better why they shut down their own mouthpiece (for a while).

When we received our ID cards that year, along with the usual information that identified who we were, along with any amateur radio information, at the very bottom of the card said..."Department of Homeland Security".
