Why couldn't this have happened during the first episode of Jersey Shore?

Probably because as long as people watch 'reality tv' they aren't paying attention to what the government is doing

/Not that the 'news' that we have now is actually news.

I have a long list of TV shows that they can visit next.

When I was young, I thought NEWS was an acronym for events happening in the North East West & South.

As I grown older, I realize it now means Nothing Ever Worth Seeing.

Seeing as this is Greece, it probably took 11 cameramen, 8 sound guys, 9 in makeup, 12 in the graphics department, 9 assistant producers, 3 producers, 7 executive producers, and 27 "we don't know what he does but he's the nephew of someone in parliament".

This is not about saving money. It is about censoring news available to the people. They shut down the independent but publicly funded (like the BBC and many other countries national broadcasters) broadcaster with no warning. If it was about money they'd have sold it off to Murdoch or someone rather than closing it down in a way they exposes them to huge redundancy liabilities as well as breach of contract liabilities from all the companies and subcontractors involved.

There are reports of the government threatening other broadcasters who are retransmitting ERT broadcasts still being made, their transmissions being jammed etc.

This is what governments do in a coup, go after the free press.

Totally agree. It's one reason i refer to CNN as the celebrity news network.
Nothing but fluff now

I believe the term "the news" is a shortening of "the new stories".

due to the Greek government's severe austerity measures

due to the Greek government's history of spending money it didn't have...

Obviously done during the show to ratchet up the drama. I'm sure they knew before the show started that they were being shut down.

Sigh. From wiki:
The word "news" developed in the 14th century as a special use of the plural form of "new".In, the equivalent word was  newes, like the French and the Germanneues. Similar developments are found in the-the and (from, "new"), the nowiny and novosti-and in the: thenewyddion (fromnewydd) and the nowodhow (fromnowydh).

When the BBC can expose the fact that the then Prime Minister faked a report that said there were WMDs in Iraq and used the document to start a war then they are independent.

The government can dictate policy but editorially the BBC is independent.
