The truman doctrine, what happened?

I have looked around the internet for answers but things like wiki are far too complicated and doesn't have the information i need, all i want to know is, what happened with the Truman Doctrine in 1947 - 48?
Im writing 2 newspaper reports, one from Americas side and one from a soviet side. So ideas from both sides will be a huge help as well. And lastly, what is a name of a soviet newspaper from 1947 - 48?
Thanks and please reply asap!! 🙂

The major Soviet newspaper was Pravda.

Most say it started the Cold War.

"First the United Kingdom and later the U.S. gave extensive military and economic aid to the Greek Government. Communist successes in 1947-48 enabled them to move freely over much of mainland Greece but with extensive reorganization and American material support the Greek National Army was slowly able to regain control over most of the countryside. Yugoslavia closed its borders to the insurgent forces in 1949 after Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia broke with Stalin and the Soviet Union."
