deadlock and bad articles

this is a message I just left on the Guardian's website at

http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/jun/03/greece-finance-chief-prepare-confront-eu-creditors-climax-nears

@Ian Traynor (The Guardian)

I am sorry that your article does not provide the readers any information on WHY a deal beetween Tsipras and Troika is impossible. In Greece, we have voted in January to end austerity that leads only to poverty and massive unemployment and now, 4 months later, we are still talking and talking about to continue austerity.

Please, try to identify which measures on the 5 pages of last night's text of troika are going to bring development to Greece... None?

You need, as Journalist, to find the hard core of the story...Calling Tsipras "radical" is not the issue...the issue is that youth unemployment in Greece is >60%, the prospects for young people are zero and this can not continue...

Let's try to identify a way forward...
You, as Journalist, and me as Univ. Teacher...

Sorry to be critical...
