Since Greece's left-wing Syriza party was elected into power on January 25, it has received a frosty reception from much of the mainstream European media.

Much of the mainstream media are still pushing a pro-austerity line, but Syriza's finance minister Yanis Varoufakis has been challenging neo-liberal orthodoxy - as well as dress codes - in Europe's newspapers and on its TV screens.

The headlines in the German media have been especially tough, and some have been accused of scaremongering. Syriza's plans for Greece represent a political shift but are journalists too attached to economic binaries to tell this story accurately?

Taking us through the story this week are: media scholar Maria Kyriakidou; Paul Mason, economics editor of Britain's Channel 4 News; Christian Rickens, head of the business desk at Der Spiegel Online; investigative journalist Yiannis Baboulias; and Julian Reichelt, editor-in-chief of the best-selling German tabloid Bild.
