Media: Play Fair with Economic Reporting on Greece

The BBC, AP, AFP and other media should acknowledge in their reporting that while the Greek government's forecast of a return to economic growth in 2014 may be disputed by the OECD, the government economic forecast is supported by the International Monetary Fund.

Why is this important?

The BBC, AP, and AFP have reported that the Greek government's forecast of a return to economic growth in 2014 has been disputed by the OECD. But these media outlets have not acknowledged that the Greek government's forecast is supported by the International Monetary Fund. This faulty economic reporting could hurt the Greek economy by discouraging investment.
