I’ve started a Twitter list of journalists who are in Greece or covering the Greece debt crisis. Please let me know who I’m missing and I’ll add to the list. So far, the list is around 40 journalists and growing. Watching it offers a first look at the news coming out of Greece and a sense of what it’s like for journalists covering the story there. You’ll see many different hashtags, too, including #Grexit, #Greferendum, #Greece and #GreeceCrisis.
On Monday, Poynter’s Al Tompkins wrote “What journalists should know about the Greek banking crisis.” We also have a collection of front pages from Europe on the crisis from Monday. There are more today, here’s one of them.
And here’s a sample of what we’re hearing from journalists covering the story:

And ye shall hear of deals and rumours of deals: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet
