“Focus” Insults Greeks, Once Again

German magazine Focus publishes a manipulated depiction of the Venus de Milo, once again. The cover reads “Greece and our Money” and will be out on news stands by Monday. Venus with a little help from Photoshop has become a “beggar”, which according to the German magazine characterizes Greece and the help the country has asked from the EU and IMF.

A few months ago Focus had attacked Greece with another offensive cover, and two articles about its financial crisis were decribed as “oversimplified and contained a populist take”.  Following was a letter of protest written in a harsh tone, issued to the editors of the German magazine FOCUS by OEK (Federation of Greek Communities in Germany) regarding the publication of two defamatory articles against Greece.
