If journalists go on strike, who will report it?

We now have an answer to this version of the continuing (if a tree falls in the forest, will anyone hear?) conundrum.

Journalists in Greece have joined the growing general strike against new austerity measures.  The 24 hour walkout left radio and TV news programs with nothing to report, and newspapers with nothing but ads to print.  Luckily, there were foreign journalists there to cover the breaking news of violent clashes between police and anarchists.
So yes, it will be reported by someone, even if it isn't being done by the people who should be doing it.
