Greek Mass Media

Greek Mass Media

Like anywhere else, Hellenic Mass Media includes newspapers, magazines, internet portals, radio stations, and television stations. Furthermore, in the context of the World Wide Web and the emerging online journalism of citizens, it is claimed that blogs are included in the Greek media.

The country is known for its love affair with "yellow press" and political affiliations, but also paradoxically for questioning what is thought to be propaganda or "fake news".

The use of social media for information in Greece is higher compared to other European countries, as seen in various surveys. It has been documented that Facebook and Twitter are preferred mainly for observing current commentary (27% and 28%), while YouTube and Instagram are used because they are considered entertaining (26% and 35%). Twitter and YouTube are also preferred because users can find views not found in traditional media (16% and 16%), while very few believe that any platform provides them with news that they find important personally. Finally, Facebook is the social media in which the public sees news by chance while it is there for non-informational purposes (30%).

Historically, freedom of speech has been guaranteed by the Constitution of Greece since the return to civilian rule in 1975 and continues to this day as an EU member State.
