Greek journalists were ‘coached’ by IMF to report with pro-austerity bias – ex-envoy

Posted by GPD on June 19, 2015

The Greek authorities want to investigate alleged misconduct by a number of journalists who attended seminars organized by the IMF and were allegedly instructed to promote the organization’s advice to Greece.

Roumeliotis was cited as saying that he accidentally bumped into Greek journalists during a visit to Washington DC, who told him that they were attending a seminar organized by the IMF.
