MINA News Agency a Major Embarassment of Objectivity and Truth in Reporting

One of the most suitable candidates for earning the title of the News “Best Manipulator” is the infamous MINA. Today’s MINA landscape consists of tiresome repetition of half-truths and falsehoods when dealing with neighbouring Greece.

““Greece has to face the new reality, as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has been recognised under its constitutional name by more than half of the members of the United Nations
