Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thank you for this. It needs wider exposure. Orange would be great, but... (perhaps Jerome could help?)

under my name if talos agrees.
I'd probably use a more identifiable title like "WSJ lies about the Greek economic crisis"

The WSJ is having a bad weekend.

It posted this and managed to piss off most of the literate Twitterverse.

Someone, perhaps Talos, should prepare a three paragraph summary of this diary and send it as an LTE to the WSJ. It would be best if it were by a WSJ subscriber, which I am not.

Excellent! Tipped, recommended and commented.

You should go read the thread and enjoy the compliments, especially thisone:


Accurate and fair, as seen from inside. (15+ / 0-)

That is an amazingly accurate and even-handed, not to mention very well-written post. Once or twice I paused as the writer and I probably do not share our Greek politics but there were no mistakes or misrepresentations.

It joins the pantheon of good pieces written about the Crisis in Greece, such as the Rolling Stone article about the Vatopedi Monastery Scandal.

If I am a frog in a pot, a la Tom Tomorrow's cartoon, it is certainly getting warmer.

Yes the discussion is very interesting in gerneral, but that particular comment was very high praise indeed, especially given the fact that we do not share political opinions in general as Athenian says. Thanks for the repost Jerome! it is very important at this stage that some taste of reality in Greece is disseminated...
