  • [01] PM press office: We are officially in the era of fake news, and this time with the signature of Reuters

    "It is obvious," it said, that the "exclusive news" regarding a press conference and the scenario of early elections based on rumours according to the author of the report would normally not concern anyone. "But, today, during a critical negotiation, any fake news aiming to cause problem to the Greek government, becomes a major issue for the media."
