Erik Helmerson: Threats to the SVT are symptoms of something far more serious

It was in the middle of January 2019. The news had just come out: the Hooded people had managed to penetrate at SVT News in Helsingborg, sweden. They threatened the editorial staff and demanded to bring out a message. Which they were wanted to SVT not to go out with.

, editor-in-chief, why he had chosen not to tell you which threatened the editorial staff. He replied that it was a difficult time to decide; the purpose of the intrusion was to gain publicity, would you then spread the group's message just because it threatened to it?

”It will not be a hundred percent right how to do it,” said Eklund. I can certainly respect that answer.

when I read the DN's reporting on the SVT and Sveriges Radio, the explosion of costs in order to manage the security. Physical threats, such as in Helsingborg, sweden, and threats in the social media mentions of the SVT's ceo Hanna Stjärne as examples of incidents increased ”very substantially” in recent years. 2018 was expenditure on security, four times higher than in 2014. It is totally bizarre.

Your extra-parliamentary methods may be demokratihotande, mine is just a sound activism.

You should be careful to draw conclusions about what the increase depends on the and on the lives of journalists and politicians really are more threatening today than in the past. What is absolutely clear is that many testify of the exact same phenomenon: A tougher tone in social media, more harassment, more pronounced threat, a spreading sense of unease, especially of women in the public sphere.

on huvudsjukdomen: the absence of respect for democratic processes. To write opinion pieces, demonstrate, argue his case, to engage itself politically and exercise their right to vote every four years is not enough. Just my main interests is so Ominously Important that I require a hearing Now!

Your extra-parliamentary methods may be demokratihotande, mine is just a sound activism.

to suspect that the social media have contributed both to the narcissism that has reduced the patience. It is a dangerous combination which, apparently, easily turns into threats and violence if I don't get my way.

the Harassment of public figures is one of the fair's fatal questions. We can not turn into politicians, journalists and commentators behind how the thick walls of that time, the cost of ”security” can not fyrfaldigas in all eternity.
