Last week he drew a bead on Reuters journalist Hugo Dixon whose critical comments on Twitter that Greece was struggling to pay the loan to the International Monetary Fund and that he government was likely to impose an additional tax angered Greece’s Minister of Finance. In his reply, the Minister, commentator, said, "Only I never said that Hugo ... Your Greek needs some brushing up (or better sources)." Then the journalist attached at least two sources that proved his arguments but no new comments from Varoufakis followed.

The next day the Minister scolded a Bloomberg journalist who opposed his refusal to answer questions by the media during a pre-announced press conference.
