Increased tax subsidies for politically correct media

“On Dec 9 last year I translated a random snapshot of the biggest newspaper in Sweden. The headlines alone spoke for themselves. It was, simply put, an orgy of political correctness, obvious attempts at emotional manipulation and general national self-loathing. In other words, a typical Swedish newspaper on any given day.

As more and more readers are waking up to the fact that they’re being manipulated, the readership of practically all mainstream newspapers have dropped like a rock in recent years.”

    Sounds like CBC News, over there in Sweden. Bruce Bawer, in his first book (describing the Islamization of Europe (he was an American ex-pat living in the Netherlands and Scandinavia at different times), describes the ultra-politically-correct newspapers, and how they were subsidized in Scandinavia. So all of this sleaze has been going on for some time.

    It would be great to see the SD get in and cut off all of the subsidies. Would be justice, in a world of corrupt scratch-our-backs newspaper sleaze.

    Well we certainly don’t have a biased controlling media in Canada. The Sunday Star has a simple explanation for the peasants not agreeing with the media here. Were all bigots. That’s right, Haroooon and Bob Hepburn explain to the peasants that anyone who is a conservative or votes for Harper is a gun toting bigot who hates muslims. And governor generals are just pawns of Harper instead of blocking him. Both well respected journalists warn us of gun toting farmers and sportsmen ransacking Canadian cities. Only socialism and islam can save us. You have been warned and must obey your betters.

  • Good by Sweden. My ancestors would be ashamed.

    I toured Sweden 40 years ago, and while out on the town one night, had a friendly chat with a slightly inebriated Swede. He told me he admired us Americans for our free press, which aggressively pursued the government over Watergate. Such a thing, he said, could not happen in Sweden, where the government controls the media and would suppress reporting on comparable wrongdoing.
