Abstract: As Europe’s leaders battle to solve the Eurozone debt crisis, Europe’s ‘communication deficit’ becomes ever more pertinent. So does the role of national media, which, in the case of Britain, are often accused of fuelling Euroscepticism among the public. This study aims to contribute to this debate and explore the UK media’s performance in the early stages of the Greek financial crisis. We address how the British press makes sense of Europe through an issue that pertains in a small economy but entails risks for the whole Europe; and we ask to what extent this coverage conforms to the allegation that European politics is portrayed through domesticized media frames and polemical language. Although our findings validate existing concerns pertaining to journalists’ professional practices that shape the reporting of Europe, they also show evidence of an effort made by British newspapers - albeit mostly broadsheets - to overcome stereotypical interpretations.
