Jewish Media Control in Sweden and Finland

The logic is that all Gentiles criticizing Jews do so, always, without any real reason except for an irrational, pathologic hatred. These anti-Semitic Gentiles further blame Jews for all the bad things happening to them in the world. Well, what if we apply that logic to Jews, what do we have? Jews are constantly blaming Gentiles for being anti-Semitic whenever they are having any problems.

Jewish Media Influence in Sweden and Finland

Every now and then we get some really interesting evidence from readers of this web site. This was just emailed to us from a reader originally from Sweden. We hope the enlightened in other nations will find their way to us and research their own country's media apparatus, and who controls it.

This paradigm of Jewish dominance of mass media information sources is evidenced throughout the world, from the U.S. to Great Britain, from Brazil to Australia, from Poland to Peru.

Dear Sir,

First of all I would like to laud you for an exhaustive and well-prepared site. You have certainly gone through the Jewish question thoroughly before compiling your observations and analysis. Reading your This week's Jewish News as usual today there was one piece of news that made my face wreathed in smiles. The piece of news concerned how the Jewish community of Lithuania accused LNK television for anti-Semitism.

Well, the far too familiar irony is that the LNK, as stated in the article is owned by the Bonnier family, based in my country of origin, Sweden. Worth mentioning then is that the Bonniers are Jewish themselves. Bonnier is a taken name; originally the family was named Hirschel. Not only is the Bonnier family Jewish and not only do they own LNK, but they are the far most influential media group in Sweden and in Finland.

Of the seven largest daily newspapers in Sweden, the seven with a daily circulation of over 100,000, the Bonnier family owns four, Dagens Nyheter (the Daily News), Expressen (the Express), Sydsvenska Dagbladet (the Southern Swedish Daily News) and Dagens Industri (the Industry of Today). The largest of the private channels in Sweden is TV4. The Bonnier family directly holds 21,6% of TV4 and through their ownership of the Finnish based Alma media company they hold an additionally 23,4%, totalling up 45% and a virtual control. As head of TV4 we find the Jew Jan Scherman. Through Alma Media, Bonnier also controls MTV3, the most popular channel in Finland with 39,1% of the total viewing time (in 2001) and Subtv, the third largest commercial television channel in Finland, aiming mainly at young adults.

Apropos Finland, Bonnier also owns 23% of MTV in that country. In Finland, Bonnier also controls the leading daily Iltalehti and Kauppalehti, Finland's largest business media with a circulation of 85.000 per day. Bonnier also control the printing house Lehdentekijät, that produces 40 regularly published magazines in Finland. In addition to that they own five regional papers, 15 local papers and nine free-distribution papers in Finland alone. They further control the Baltic News Service, the leading news bureau in the Baltic region, providing the world with news about the Baltic with a Bonnier touch.

Beside the Bonnier family in Sweden there is the Jew Peter Hjörne (Kaplan), owner and chief editor of Göteborgs-Posten (the Gothenburg Post; GP), the fourth largest newspaper in Sweden with a circulation of 253,700, reaching 600,000 readers daily. GP is furthermore the only newspaper in Sweden's second city, Gothenburg. Hjörne is also the owner of two local newspapers, Bohuslänningen (32.400) and Strömstads tidning (5,200); both distributed in the Swedish north-west coast area. In addition he controls 22% of Liberala tidningars konsortium (the consortium of liberal newspapers) and thereby Nerike Allehanda (The eighth largest newspaper in Sweden with a circulation of 66,300), Motala tidning/Vadstena tidning (12,800), Bergslagsposten (10,600) and Nya Ludvika tidning (9,500). Finally he also holds 9% of Hallandsposten (31,000).

Hjörne is a part of the old Jewish establishment in Gothenburg and has his way to influence the Gentiles of that city. For instance, when the Jew Steven Spielberg¹s movie Schindler¹s List reached the screens Hjörne personally paid so all senior high school students would see it. The Bonnier family owns 30% and Hjörne owns 10% of The Swedish News-agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (the Swedish Central News Agency), the mainly news source for the none-local news stories in most minor papers in Sweden.

The largest newspaper in Sweden is Aftonbladet (the Evening Post), jointly owned by the Swedish Labour Union and the Norwegian Schibstedt company. The chief editor, however, is the Jewess Helle Klein, great granddaughter of the former grand rabbi of Stockholm, Rabbi Gottlieb Klein. Her father, Ernst Klein, is influential in Swedish media as well. 1990-1999 he was the chief editor of Östgöta Correspondenten, the ninth largest newspaper in Sweden, and now he sits on its board. He furthermore is president of Svensk Presshistorisk Förening (Swedish association of press history).

Beside Klein there are several Jewish staffers working at Aftonbladet.

In other words, of the seven largest news papers in Sweden, six are either owned by or edited by Jews. And please note, there are fewer than 20,000 Jews in Sweden making up roughly 0.2% of the total population. Actually, I could go on and on describing the Jewish media influence in Sweden but I guess you see where I am heading. That LNK or Bonnier would be anti-Semitic is about the most ridiculous I have heard. Keep up the good work!

Regards, M

Lithuanian Jewish community blames LNK television for anti-Semitism

Interfax, October 23, 2003
"The Jewish Community of Lithuania (JCL) has demanded that the private TV channel LNK stop the "anti- Semitic propaganda" in its programs, JCL Chairman Simonas Alperavicius told Interfax on Wednesday. JCL has sent LNK's managers, Swedish media group Bonnier, which owns the station, and the Swedish media community an open letter saying that "the authors of the humorous program Dviracio Zynios (Bicycle News), pretending to engage in parodies, incites spectators against the Jewish people," Alperavicius said. This was especially clear in the program dealing with the September visit of Israeli Knesset Chairman Reuven Rivlin to Vilnius. "When the humorous issues of this TV channel concern the Jewish theme, a character parodying a Jew is always presented as a swindler or thief trying to get rich in a dishonest way - how long are we going to tolerate this?" Alperavicius said. Rivlin's statements in Lithuania "have evoked a tide of intolerance and anti-Semitism, and websites have seen over four thousand anti-Semitic remarks that were beyond any standards of civilized dialogue," he said. "In this situation, the escalation of negative stereotypes on a TV channel's programs could influence the state of mind in unhealthy people and encourage some politicians to make irresponsible statements or even verbal attacks against Lithuanian citizens of Jewish origin," the letter says. Israeli Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin, during his September visit, was categorical about the responsibility of Lithuanians for slaughtering Jews during the Nazi occupation, which caused a controversial response. In particular, Seimas Chairman Arturas Paulauskas told Lithuanian radio that Rivlin's visit "was not something that could serve the improvement of our relations or better understanding of our positions."

M's Follow-up:

... [T]here is a Jew named Robert Aschberg in Sweden who wields a great lot of power in our media. He owns the largest production company in Sweden called Strix Television and produces programs for every major channel, especially TV3 where almost all programs that aren’t Hollywood produced sitcoms, talk shows (Ricky Lake and Jerry Springer) or bad movies comes from Strix. It was Strix by the way that first came up with the idea of the show Survivor, now broadcasted also in the USA. Aschberg himself is the head of several of these usually noisy and chaotic shows and has thus been called Sweden’s Michel Friedman. His maternal grandfather is the banker Olof Aschberg who helped finance the Russian revolution and his brother, Richard Aschberg, works at Aftonbladet (the Evening Post). Robert Aschberg is further an important financer of eXpo, a Swedish version of the ADL, while it however is not an exclusively Jewish organization.

To analyze the Jewish influence in Sweden is a delicate matter, much due to the fact that the influence in many regards is indirect ...
