I’m not sure what’s more amusing: the fact that I’m reading about a pet that eats newspapers or that I know that I have a pet named Cheyenne.
In an age where greek literature and media outlets have become the most widely read in the world, I’ve often wondered what it would be like if I was a Greek newspaper writer and the world were filled with thousands of cats and dogs.
That question has now been answered.
According to an analysis of newspapers published in Greece from 2013 to 2015, I am more likely to read a greece newspaper than a german newspaper.
I also have more of a propensity to follow a gaijin on Twitter, which means that if I know the name of the person who created the tweet, I can figure out who that person is based on their Twitter handle and whether they are a ghiyaku.
The number of Greeks and Germans in the same category is even higher, according to the study.
And it’s not just my greek peers that I tend to follow.
As you can see in the map below, it’s actually quite the opposite: the more greeks in a given country, the more likely I am to read about a garyan news outlet, which can explain why I spend so much time on Twitter.
For instance, if I’m in the Netherlands and the first news I read about the city is the BBC’s news of the day, then that’s one more reason to follow that particular news outlet.
When I’m on Twitter and the news is from a Greek news source, I’ll know immediately that the source is Greek.
The same goes for Greek newspapers, which is a nice bonus.
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of the results, courtesy of the International Union of Journalists (IUP), which included all the publications in the list.
To make the numbers even more interesting, the study included articles from all countries of the European Union, including Greece.
So it’s pretty clear that greek journalists are more likely than any other nationality to write about the news that Greece actually does.
Now, I’m pretty sure that the Greeks and their media are not the only ones to have this preference.
But if you have a gandalf, a hottie, a cormorant, a goat or a dragon, I suppose you can say you’re a gourmand.
