The Greek government has shut down the public broadcaster ERT, calling it a "haven of waste". Viewers watching the news on the main TV will get nothing but a blank screen and all news employees have been laid off. Much of this is blamed on EU austerity measures, but it is also down to the Greek nation's past government getting the country into the situation in the first place. Of course this does not help the rank and file electorate of Greece. This is the price they must pay to become stable within the Eurozone. There seems to be much more austerity ahead for Greece.
