Americaletter to Sweden
The Swedish homepage Amerikabrev.nu just published a letter from me in which I argue that the Swedish public service coverage of the 2004 U.S. presidential election was highly biased. A recent example of this bias became obvious when the Swedish television network (SVT) broadcasted Outfoxed - Murdoch's War on Journalism as a non-partisan documentary about Fox News. Yeah right... When a 'documentary' is financed by MoveOn and Center for American Progress (founded by John Podesta, former Chief of Staff for president Bill Clinton) - only Swedish television can interpret it as a fair and balanced documentary.
