Publisher of Greek Shock Sheet Paper Shot, Wounded

July 27, 2020

ATHENS – The publisher of Greek fringe newspaper Makeleio, Stefanos Chios, was shot and seriously injured outside his home in Athens. His paper is noted for for offensive headlines and language 

He was shot shot in the neck and the side of his body around 3 a.m. July 27, according to initial reports which didn't include any information about who may have done the shooting or how many times he was hit.

The shooting happened outside his house in Vrilissia, a suburb north of Athens center. He was taken to Sismanoglio hospital from where he was referred to KAT hospital in northern Athens, reports added.

The paper uses sensationalistic headlines, making him a notorious figure in Greece's media industry which is dominated by papers with openly political agendas opposing each other but he stands out, with politicians having threatened to sue him on some occasions.
