"Åsa Linderborg: It is not only in Russia, it created fake news"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"last year In november, revealed Today's News that the Swedish medieinstitutet Fojo in Kalmar for seven days had an agent from the Russian security services. The article was based on secret information that the reporter Mattias Carlsson received from ”a northern european security”."
"Today the newspaper Aftonbladet Culture a review of this disclosure, of the journalists Mattias Göransson and Johannes Wahlström."
"and The ”Russian agent” named Alexei Vladimirov and has never hidden his past in the military. It is public information and nothing being withheld from Fojo. Of his classmates at Fojo, he was called to be a ”comrade major”. The photo on the Vladimirov in uniform, that DN uses as evidence, they have taken from his facebook page."
"Since ten years back is Vladimirov worked as a journalist, with heavy revelations about the Russian regime and the enterprise. DN leans against a single confidential source."
"That Göransson and Wahlström points out, they can not know if the source is completely wrong, but everything speaks for it. DN has at several occasions published information on the Russian threat – submarines and aircraft – as refuted, but they have had to formulate a concrete correction or apology."
"I'm writing this in the same moment that the Stockholm district court commences its proceedings in a libel suit between the daily News and the businessman Johan Lundberg, who is also identified as a security threat in Putin's pen."
"In the book ”the Bear,” rings Mattias Göransson into the groupthink that generates this type of journalism. Even the smartest can become as enchanted when they write about intelligence agencies and espionage. The information is notoriously unreliable and its value is difficult to assess, but nevertheless rely blindly on their sources."
"But it is also about the Swedish media has preconceived notions about everything related to Russia. One example is the ”MP-the official” as of an organ utmålades as a Russian spy, a task which the Aftonbladet spread first. Everything turned out to be a forgery, but it prevented still not Henrik Sundbom in the infamous Atlantic Council report, to disseminate the claim internationally."
"In other countries there is an ongoing debate about how political enemies are running to foreign states in cases. One example with bearing on the right Martin Kragh is the Sunday Mail revealing that a secret government security organization in the Uk, ”Institute for Statecraft”, has soiled Jeremy Corbyn. The institute is the base for an international network to put the people who spread the ”Russian propaganda”. Involved in the scandinavian branch of the business, according to the leaked document has been Martin Kragh, at the institute of Foreign affairs, as in supposedly scientific garb including brännmärk the Nato-critical the peace movement."
"Swedish media attention please false news from Russia, and such, there are plenty of. We are significantly worse at keeping the area clean in front of your own door."
