Journalists told not to cover Bildeberg meeting in AthensSubmitted by Stuck in foo-pit on Tue, 05/19/2009 - 10:42
The London Daily News has been receiving dispatches from its Athens correspondent that armed security officials have maintained the secretive Bilderberg Group session in an atmosphere of almost hysterical paranoia, to keep all media out.
The Bilderberg Group which meets in secret each year is the opportunity for the world’s most influential politicians and financiers to debate the "high political issues" of the day in total secrecy. Anyone who attended the London G-20 summit would have thought that this was the precursor for the Bilderberg meeting in Athens.
The media have been locked out of the meeting Athens, and a total blackout is operating in Greece, with local media in many cases not even covering the event. One local journalist who spoke with the London Daily News correspondent in Athens said:
"We have been told by senior government officials that covering the event could cost us our jobs. Greece is in the depths of a major recession and I cannot afford to lost my job".
