Newspaper Etiquette 101: Don’t Mislead Your Audience

On August 5, the New York Times published an opinion piece by Matthaios Tsimitakis titled The Adults Are Back in Charge of Greece. And They Are Really Right-Wing: The return of order is proving to be the return of the right.

Tsimitakis, who was identified by the Times as merely a “Greek journalist,” went on a passive-aggressive lecture about Greece’s new Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his “right wing party with pronounced authoritarian …

  1. Not that big of a deal, yes protocol was not preformed…but still an opinion piece can say what ever it wants, the writer lied, not the NYT on purpose, a journalistic error ( Kinda like your Headline US scientist dies in fall Ikaria? It’ British scientist…a grammatical error…) At least the author admitted that Adults were now in charge. It could have been a SYRIZA supporter saying the same thing…Opinions are just that, how many non greeks even read it most never even saw til all this fake horror of how bad it was and NYT lied….just print the truth, Opinion pieces in TNH, are they vetted? Are they supporters of any party? Paid? Business dealings, etc, Anything printed in TNH, Now run by family members of a slight ministry position in Greece held by their Father can be seen and read the same way, the disclaimer that anything written about ND and the Greek gov, is Father is a member.

  2. We be telling you NYT was red for years but you be calling us rednecks and cowpies instead.
    All you urban elites like to be accepted by these people and fear embarassment more than death.

    1. How about a former member of the Ahepa and president telling you ..that TNH is a fascist journalistic publication and propaganda outlet for the Greek Secret Society of Aristocratic right wing elitists and white supremacist Neo con lunatics in Washington, whose agenda parallels that of a foreign policy of criminal regime change wars to advance an Imperialistic objective of taking over the sovereignty of every country of the world!

      Would you call me red, blue, insane , fascist, racist, anti Greek , Anti American., communist, .or could you bring yourself to possibly, just maybe.. consider it as a genuine opinion that just may have truth.and see if there are any facts or merit to the charges.like watching Vanessa pull posts that expose her and your Supreme President George Horiatis misleading distortions..to betray the people of Cyprus, by an illegitimate nothing ..whose only fame is taking pictures with important people of financial means.

      But these white supremacist who take over countries..see no wrong in doing it to Cyprus!
      .
      Colonialist Winston Churchill who stated in 1937, and U.S colonialist brother today…

      “I do not admit for instance that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly-wise race to put it in that way has come in and taken their place.”

      He must be red!

  3. This matter brings back memories to me of the 1990s when Elia Kazan published a great novel entitled “Beyond the Aegean.” The novel dealt with the Asia Minor Catastrophe of 1922. The New York Times book review dismissed it with a savage review under a bold headline: “Beware of Greeks bearing history.”

    The New York Times has to be watched carefully.

  4. Four powerhouses of the Greek-American Community came together and wrote a joint letter to the editor of the New York Times stating their disappointment in The New York Times’ decision to publish an opinion piece written by Greek journalist Matthaios Tsimitakis….as states by TNH , the now undisputed champion of fake news for the glory ofAmerica and Israel Greek Secret Society of Ahepa Masons who just finished oppressing the readers.by censoring opposing truths about their brother George Horaits and his effort to sell out the sovereignty of Cyprus and make invented enemies of his …that of the Greek Cypriots…..
    For your review ..it is titled “Complicated ACT” , a billionaire right wing scamcalled the East Med Energy Partnership ..right!…

    Only four right wing White supremacist billionaires can publically claim like George Horaitis ..that they are the UNDISPUTED UNEQUALED (FINANCIALLY), BUT NEVER ELECTED LEADERS OF THE GREEK COMMUNITY!

    THE ONLY ONES MISSING FROM THIS GREEK SECRET SOCIETY OF BILLIONAIRE OLIGARKS..WHO IN FACT ARE THE LEADERS OF NOT ONLY THE GREEK COMMUNITY..BUT THE ENTIRE AMERICAN COMMUNITY WITH THE LEADERS OF THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OLIGARKS GEORGE SOROS WHO SPONSORS OF HALF THE EU PARLIAMENT, AND SHELDON ADELMAN, WHO SPONSOR RIGHT WING PRESIDENTS DONALD TRUMP AND ROBERT MENENDEZ TO HIS BIDDING!!

    These billinaires called Olgarks sponsored and own Mistotakis, and why Secret Society brother Diamataris has a position in Greece..

  5. cont…
    If the ND is the party of the oligarchs, the Greek oligarchs that is, those Greek who have placed literally billions of euros outside their country in (still) secret bank accounts in Switzerland, France, Lichtenstein, Luxemburg and elsewhere, including the Cayman islands and other Caribbean tax havens , hidden not only from the Greek fiscal authorities, but also impeding that these funds could, crucially, be used for investments at home, for job creation, for creation of added value in Greece –if the ND is the party of the oligarchs they are unlikely to make the dream of the vast majority of Greek people come true.
    Worse even, these Greek oligarch-billionaires call the shots in Greece ,not the people, not those who according to Greek tradition and according to the Greek invention,called “democracy” (Delphi, some 2500 years ago) have democratically elected Syriza and have democratically voted against the austerity packages in July 2015. Now, that they are officially in power, they are unlikely to change their greed-driven behavior and act in favor of the Greek people. – Or will they?
    Hilarious, the billionaires call out the New York Times, the fake news mouthpiece that has enabled them to live their dreams.
    Mistotakis is worst than right wing,his first foreign policy act was to support right wing fascists of America to wage economic warfare on the people of Venezuela which starves them to death to remove their elected leader,and install his choice !
