FYROM’s Kanal5 TV: The Big Lie Technique Employed [14-III-2009]

FYROM’s high-rating, Skoplje-based Kanal5 TV claims that a Greek diplomat confirms existence of 2.500.000 “ethnic Macedonians” in Greece. In reality, a verbal deception worthy of Goebbels has been made in order to create an implausible assertion: take a look.

The introduction from the 17.00 o’clock news, 14-March-2009:

This afternoon in Voden*, at a press-conference, the chief of the Greek diplomacy shall explain to the journalist what she spoke to our people (sic) at the meeting in Voden. The Greek Government, regardless of the recommendations from the report of Gay McDougall, which were yesterday presented before the members of the Council for Human Rights, nevertheless remained on attitude that no Macedonians in Greece exist. According the the Greek representative in Geneva, the interference of our country and the encouragement of 2.500.000 people in Greece to confirm that they are Macedonians will bring a serious confusion and potential crash of their identity.
