Proto Thema and Generation Europa - March MMH

Is this the logic that goes into the #journalism that we depend on?⁠ Proto Thema, a well-established right-wing newspaper in Greece, recently published an article based on a video supposedly filmed at the Greek border. The author says how the #refugees are 'invading' Greece, shouting 'Allahu Akbar'. The problem is, the only source for this article was a Tweet by right-wing account Generation Europa. Responsible journalism investigates and checks sources, and should not simply repeat racist claims but a biased social media account.⁠⠀
