We study the role of global media during the Greek debt crisis and relate
it to the transmission of events on financial actors’ expectations. To identify news
coverage about the Greek debt crisis, we apply topic modeling to a newly com-
piled dataset of over 430,000 articles from The International New York Times and
Financial Times from 2009 to 2015. We identify a Greek debt crisis topic and relate
it to events concerning Greece during this time period. Our finding is that events
are only relevant for financial markets when they are covered in the media,
whereas events without media coverage have no effect. News coverage without
immediate events is equally irrelevant for financial markets.
