"In the book of #metoo-the allegations, the review of the former Aftonbladet journalist Fredrik Virtanen how he ended up on the wrong side of the Swedish kulturkriget"
"The former journalist at Aftonbladet, Fredrik Virtanen, is a victim of everything that is amiss with Sweden."
"He is a victim of a polarized public sphere, where identitetsfeminister and alternativhöger suddenly had a common enemy when the left-wing journalist, is accused of rape by a ”instagramkändis” on the social media under the #Metoo-the campaign in 2017."
"nHan is a victim of commercial pressed mainstreammedier who did not want to stand back for each other or for social media. Metoo-the wave gripped Sweden, with a strength that put the feminist mönsterlandet alongside the other european neighbouring countries, and got the media to forget all the fundamental press ethics."
"Virtanen are also victims of the special Swedish tystnadskultur or ”åsiktskorridor”, which makes everyone is afraid to end up on the wrong side in the debate."
"But Fredrik Virtanen is not in the least a victim of himself; his självöverskattning and his depressive, missbruksplågade self-hatred, that had the outlet in the hard-angled and cynical tabloidjournalistik he was in a festrus on drugs and alcohol in his younger days."
"of course, It is a clean and självterapeutisk – degree of self-government as Virtanen delivers."
"nAllting evidenced by the book Without mercy as Fredrik Virtanen has written about his ”transformation” to a nasty insect, as the author puts it, with reference to a short story by Franz Kafka with the same transformational theme."
"Without mercy is a book Virtanen characterizes as ”documentary”, ”where the content is proven and demonstrable according to traditional journalistic principles”. But of course, it is a clean and självterapeutisk – degree of self-government as Virtanen delivers. There is no helpful notapparat in the book, only a few citations, for those who would like to call his account of the matter."
"nMetoo-the movement is in the return, a historical turning point in the fight against abuse, rape and the abuse of power, as Fredrik Virtanen is now one of the first to describe the. Many do not want to see him as the victim he himself has said that he is. They look rather Instagram-celebrity as the sole victims."
"Virtanen is never doomed. But våldtäktsanklagelser are depreciated often. It is words against words. It is for this reason that many countries in the last few years trying to modernize its våldtäktslagstiftning. So few are convicted, and the judicial system show obvious shortcomings in meeting with the victims of rape."
"He is disgusted over his nightly trampkvarn of abuse, lots of women, masculine heat and kokainlinor on blondie's LP covers"
"nFredrik Virtanen, however, is also a mediesociologiskt fallstudium. That he – by his own admission – has had to go to Norway to get the book published, and that Aftonbladet has felt compelled to get the book reviewed by a writer outside the country's borders, as Virtanen-the case is so inflamed in Sweden, says it all about why it would be written and issued."
"the Book is well-written and cleverly constructed. It begins with a flyktscen at Arlanda airport, where Virtanen and his wife tries to isolate the children from the Swedish newspaper Expressen headlines. The book also includes a look back at Virtanen's life as celebrated but oempatisk columnist, he is disgusted over his nightly trampkvarn of abuse, lots of women, masculine heat and kokainlinor on blondie's LP covers."
"suddenly it left you lord."
"nHär is a thirteen day countdown to the moment when the Expressen, eventually naming him as the rapist. Thirteen days when he receives threats and gets the first aid from the Row direction, while the acquaintances turn their backs on him. After four weeks, he is kicked. In parallel with the personal descent houses, the book also which with both Instagramprofilen and Virtanen."
"This is also Virtanen analysis of a kind of Swedish kulturkrig; the orgy of self-affirmation on social media, where you buy a PK-identity by supporting #Metoo with the likes as well as a dry finding that the movement – with its violent cocktail of sex, celebrity and the abuse of power – it is the ”most lucrative has happened to the press since the 1994 world CUP and the terror attack on Drottninggatan”. It is the old media meeting with the new social media, people that are documented. For suddenly it left you lord."
"He has been on the Trumps, and his angry, white kärnväljares page. On the man's side."
"n”The most essential difference in comparison with the right-wing radical media is that the centre is not held in Sweden, when the feministradikal media used the same methods,” writes Virtanen who has suddenly ended up on the wrong side of the kulturkrig that he himself has written about as a journalist. He has been on the Trumps, and his angry, white kärnväljares page. On the man's side."
"Mission mission documentary in the SVT, which put a critical light on, first and foremost, Expressen and Svenska Dagbladet, conducted by Virtanen presented as the final proof of the injustice that he is unemployed and can never be taken to the grace in the Swedish public sphere. The two papers spread baseless inaccuracies. It was word against word, and gossip from social media. The journalists had, according to the UG, not even read the police investigations, and therefore saw not that many of the anonymous allegations is not consistent with the information in the interrogation."
"”No one survived from the metoo with honor intact”, as Virtanen writes."
"nUG-the journalist, who stood behind the documentary, Lina Makboul, received threats and experienced rejection from colleagues, which meant that she took the side of Virtanen. And both the Swedish broadcasting commission and the Press council received a hitherto unseen amount of notifications. Both the media's depiction of the Metoo-uthängda men's and UG's documentary had to endure strong criticism. The aftermath is not yet completed."
"Aftonbladet's cultural section Åsa Linderborg has called Virtanen-the case for the ”largest assault in Swedish presshistoria”. But she also got with the head of the house of culture in Stockholm is a Metoo-cases on his conscience, which, however, she has been very self-critical around. ”No one survived from the metoo with honor intact”, as Virtanen writes."
"nany social movements have a front and back cover. It is not possible to celebrate the one and deny the other. If not the man that the victims voice in the Metoo-the debate they will exclude women and even more so to pull back to the ”informal herrklubbar”. "
"Why is Fredrik Virtanen book is a necessary reminder of the responsibility that a number of media have failed, but they always are the first to demand of the other. n"
