News blackout hits Greece as journalists begin four-day strike

Journalists in Greece have walked out of newsrooms across the country, causing a nationwide news blackout in the first of four strike days. They are the latest sector to protest against government austerity measures, Detsche Welle reports. Journalists across the country began the first of a four-day protest on Thursday, causing a nationwide news blackout. No television or radio news bulletins will be broadcast, no news websites will be updated and no newspapers or magazines will be published until Tuesday. A series of job cuts has hit news organizations in Greece following universal austerity measures. In response, the Athens journalists’ union has demanded that journalists be rehired at several newspapers and TV stations and pay cuts be reversed.
