"Åsa Linderborg on the Bonnier's purchase of Mittmedia"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"After the long suspense, it is clear that it is Bonnier that buy the media group's Mittmedia together with the Norwegian Amedia. 28 local newspapers change owners, including Nerikes Allehanda, Falu-Kuriren, Sundsvalls Tidning and the VLT."
"Bonniers say already now that it will save 200 million in the crisis-ridden tidningsgruppen. The editorial boards shall, however, providing for the closure, the money shall be withdrawn on the administration."

The same articles can be read in all the newspapers, the only thing that separates them is the very locally embossed material. Mainstreaming of journalism and the public discourse is already a serious problem."
"the 200 million is pretty much money, Stockholmscentraliserade the payment of the salaries would not be enough for the savings. One can speculate if Bonniers intend to put down the printing works in the north of sweden. The printing house in Akalla has a violent overcapacity, perhaps, the Örnsköldsvik Allehanda to be printed in Stockholm, and then långtradas up through the country.

"Out of a demokratisynpunkt already owns Bonniers troublesome much. With this deal comes even more news, views, thoughts, and words are filtered through a single ägandefamilj. Although it is nothing compared to how Facebook and Google adds markets, but the question is still whether any other democratic country would have accepted such a concentration of ownership. "
