Bias about the U.S. in Swedish Media

Johan Norberg, a Swedish libertarian writer for the Timbro think-tank, writes about his recent clash with the Swedish leftist media elite here (in Swedish). Some excerpts from this meeting and the panel debate can be read (in English) on his blog:

The one part of the debate I find most fascinating is when some of the most influential journalists on the panel argue that every journalist not only has to critisize Bush but that a journalist furthermore has a duty to editorialize against the Bush policies, since Bush is for capital punishment. (However, the same journalist seemed to be oblivious of the fact that Kerry favored capital punishment for terrorists.)
