Tax money at work
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.
Swedish newspapers have seen the circulation decrease from almost 5 million in 1987 to 3 million now, with the trend even appearing to accelerate. The sharp drop in recent years coincides with the meteoric rise of nationalist party SD (5,7% in 2010, 12,9% in 2014, now polling at 18-19%) which may have something to do with the mainstream medias continuous smear campaigns against the party.
