"Margot Wallström: M in Stockholm to lay down the SR and SVT is amazing"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. Who can you trust? Perhaps the question is more relevant than ever before. "
"According to Förtroendebarometern 2019, we rely most of all on sale. Among the media, we have the highest confidence for Sveriges radio and Sveriges television. 65% of the Swedish people trust the SR and 61% in sweden, compared with 31 per cent for TV4 and only 9% for TV3. "
"With these numbers for the eyes, and in a media landscape where fake news and the propaganda is becoming increasingly common, select, moderate party in Stockholm to lay down the public service. "
"When the social democrats were formed more than a century ago, it was our primary goal to introduce and strengthen democracy in our country. Universal and equal suffrage, free and independent media, gender equality and welfare makes Sweden one of the world's most democratic countries. We can be proud of. "
"Unfortunately, we can never take the democratic successes are taken for granted. We must constantly defend and argue for our democratic values. "
"In times of misinformation and faktaförvanskning is Stockholmsmoderaternas proposal astounding. They are in the company of Conservatives in the western Region, who want to limit the public service mission. "
"But by limiting the public service, limits to democracy, too. In a mature democracy, the public service is an indispensable component, because it should reflect the political debate but also examine the us policymakers. "
"In the public service mission is to impartially and objectively convey the news events from different perspectives, reflect the whole country, giving space to minorities, and a diversity of views take place. The Swedish people are guaranteed a wide range of news, social and cultural programmes, films, documentaries and entertainment programmes. "
"It gives, in turn, the ordinary person access to impartial, factual information in order to comply with the development of society and make wise decisions in everyday life. Within the EU, most member states have chosen to protect the public service. "
"Especially today, when states engaged in propaganda by letting trollfabriker produce fake news, the public service is invaluable. If it was would the consequence be a biased and uncritical news coverage. "
"In this way it reduces people's ability to form their own opinion through objective journalism. Man is a social creature, and it makes us vulnerable to fake news, lies and propaganda. "
"the Conservatives are not alone in wanting to limit the public service. The sweden democrats have several representatives praised the developments in the countries where the free media is being attacked. The democratic foundations are the Moderates willing to compromise with? The answer is particularly interesting due to the fact that the Conservatives have opened up to reign with the support of The sweden democrats. "
"the social democrats, is the guarantor of that right-wing forces should not have this decisive influence. In a time when the prevalence of fake news is increasing and the right-wing forces are attacking the freedom of the role of the media, it is important to speak up. "
"the Socialists will always defend a free and independent public service. "
"Who can you trust? A critical approach is always good, but just like most swedes, I want to continue to be able to trust my news. "
