THE in recent years, has the Swedish storavisa Expressen experienced a marked progress in the number of readers on the web. There are various reasons for the success, but the sport is the strikingly concentrated around the competition for Norway in cross country skiing. It can be a lot of fun in such a kiving between nabofolk, but also a drain tube for the evil blood.
In a pålest and otherwise fit ambulatory sportsredaksjon in a newspaper with the slogan "Berättande as berör", is the last just to play on the Swedish feelings. Thus, in order to sell.
It is sad. For then the road card over to the lie.
now with the frenetic presentation of the olympia top at Sognsvann in Oslo, norway as a secret place for the Norwegian cheating and fanteri.
FRONT at Expressen.see leaves no doubt about what takes place in the Norwegian elite sport behind a closed barrier. Which has a new wide documentary on this Norwegian fitness centre on the occasion of the upcoming world cup skiing in Seefeld is the startling title:Swedish self-criticism: Where does this Norway-the hatred from?
" the Norwegian hemliga factory; so were they the best in the world ".
the Subtitle, drag the readers even a little further into the fantasy of what's going on in nabofolket:
" Therese Johaug: Jag är där several times in vecken "
And before you have to pay to read the actual story about it that stands as a documentation of the Norwegian sin, get you the following thrilling text intro:
"Behind a rödvit bom skymtar one byggkomplex in the rain. Där inside there is the answer at hur Norway utvecklats till världens and vintersportnation – as lämnade OS in Pyeongchang with osannolika 39 medals.
I would säga att it has betytt all of our subsequent success of the empire, säger Vidar Löfhus, landslagschef för längdåkarna.
- Jag är där flera gånger the veckan, säger superstjärnan Therese Johaug."
Smart to sell newspaper subscriptions on the web? Possibly. The Swedish mindreverdighetskomplekset against the Norwegian winter sports has certainly grown so large that this completely meaningless nederlagsfølelsen at the once so proud sportsfolket has become a market potential.Four out of ten swedes believe in the Norwegian langrennsdoping
But most of all is how journalism cynical. This is just another ugly attempt to maintain a false fiendebilde of the Norwegian cross-country skiing with the swedes.
FOR it is all usannhetene about the Norwegian cross-country skiing in connection with astmadebatten and Therese Johaug that are the framework around this posting in Expressen. This vinklingen suitable commercially to the fairly widespread notion in Sweden that their skihelter the last few decades has been outdone by the Norwegian cheaters. For just over two years ago it was 41 per cent of its rival, aftonbladet's readers who believed that it was a statsorganisert dop behind the Norwegian success.
When it is time to look at just the image that Expressen gives of the modest Norwegian toppidrettssenteret two weeks before the world cup in Seefeld.
HAS you have been at this boom on the Sognsvann (and indeed, it has Expressens reportasjeteam), you know that it does not have anything to do with Olympiatoppens property.
This quite so innocent veibommen ensures the board-walks and the ski slopes from the great utfartsparkeringen right by. This is Oslo's busiest point of departure to enjoy in marka.the World shelves Klæbo and Norway. We are only complaining
the image Itself in Expressen is a Swedish collage to create the right mood for the Norwegian horror.
BUT it's fake doesn't stop there. The so-called "secret factory"; also, the olympia top, must be the world's most accessible national toppidrettssenter. Now it's even got a tiny little the Scandic hotel within the walls where any random guest can get a lot with the Norwegian idrettsheltene.
after the building opened in the early 1990s, elite athletes and the recreational athletes trained side by side. First, for a couple of years ago, it was so cramped that the elite got some time for themselves.
This openness between the width and the top is the actual "Norwegian idrettsmodellen"; the unique organization of the Norwegian sports that idrettsledere our have confronted of to all and all after we in the early 1990s with the olympia top began to win so much in sports.
AT the last winter OLYMPICS was Olympiatoppens boss Tore his own " in the largest global TV channels to tell why little Norway was the best in the world. This is no secret, we neither can or should manage to hold on to; it is Askeladd-the story of a idrettstenkning that is good for all society.The OLYMPIC news spreads doubt the world over: - Doctor, are all the Norwegian drugged?
so we let hundreds of chinese talents now to learn all about the Norwegian winter sports, at the same time that we suspect chinese technology. And invite all european youth to get the full training in the national our knowledge of to go fast on skis, while we otherwise pukker on selvråderett and curse the european cooperation.
The so-called "secret" behind the Norwegian success, is exactly the same story as we cry out to all who had lazy to listen to.
THIS know, of course, Expressens best sportsreportere. The story about Therese Johaug and the other Norwegian stars ' use of the olympia top does not contain a single new or false accusation. It is completely fine.
There is, however, not innsalget. It spreads suspicion and create deliberately a false impression. And it happens at Expressen.see day after day.
It is not long ago the newspaper on the front tasteless tooled the normal hormonbehandlingen given to a couple of young Norwegian skijenter as Norwegian doping with the following title: "Supertalongen has been dopingklassat preparation. Norwegian skidförbundets information about nya Björgen".the World is amazed at the success: - What is the Uk has found?
This vicious vinklingen got the newspaper's sportskommentator Tomas Petterson to take a kind of settlement with its own newspaper after the first to have criticized the Norwegian skiforbundet because they had allowed themselves to push by the media to publish løpernes name:
- Reaktionerna was omedelbara rundtom in this skidvärld. News toppade mediesajter in Norway, Sweden, Finland and in än fler länder. Och ofta with a existing contents of the syftning against the D-word, wrote Petterson, and then come forward to itself:
- We SportExpressen was verkligen no undantag. Här publicerades första artikeln with rubriken " Supertalangen has been dopingklassat preparation ". Danska sajten Course trains it one step längre with rubriken " Norway erkender: Super-talent's doping ".
And so it goes, this våset about not the editorial itself is honest when they tell their stories.
FOR it is journalistic honesty this is to talk about. Thus, the opposite of cunning to trick the readers into believing that Expressen has even a revelation about how the Uk fusker in the slot.
the newspaper's editor-in-chief Thomas Mattsson wrote last year a little bit about how the media must stop such fake news:
- Enda sättet att tackla falska news och vårda läsarnas förtroende är att ihärdigt publicera konsekvensneutral and självständig journalistik, he told us. It is an important task for the media in a time where mistrust is growing in many areas of society.
the Game between the world's best neighbors need in each case, not more unfounded distrust. Then it is soon time that the Expressen gives their readers a different and truer story on the front page about why little Norway apparently often turn big brother Sweden in the sport.

Expressens sportssjef, Pär Andersson, has the following response to the Esten O. Sæthers comment:
Jag tycker it is beklagligt of the Newspaper again, one publicerar a krönika of Esten O. Saether där he fantiserar freely and completely without reason writing again SportExpressen - världens and skidbevakning - anklagar Norway for cheating. Texten is about the olympia top och hur Norway got up so många medaljörer inom winter sports. Point. Sedan att Dagbladet krönikör affect; paranoid och koppla ihop vägbommar with doping är bara väldigt märkligt in mina's eyes.
