The Swedish media however is so very good at muzzling itself……
“We do not let embassies, politicians or other groups control our content,” Viveka Hansson, above, said.
Yeah, riiight. The same station pulled a program on Israel after its Swedish cooking celebrity Tina Nordström referred to Jerusalem as ”Israel’s heart”:
“Jerusalem – Israel’s heart. Here lives the present, side by side with the past. Israel is also one of the world’s most multicultural countries. It has an incredible mix of everything,” an announcer is heard saying in the show. “Wherever you are in Israel you are reminded of religions.”
Typical Swedish hypocrisy………
‘Turkish embassy tried to muzzle Swedish media’ – TV4

Hansson, in a statement on the T4 website, said that she had been sent an e-mail by Arif Gulen, the press officer at the Turkish embassy, asking her to “reconsider the decision” to broadcast a documentary tonight about the slaughter by the Ottoman Empire of Armenians and other minorities that occurred during the First World War.
Turkey has long rejected claims that the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 should be classified as a genocide.
Hansson dismissed the request out of hand.
“We can never accept this. We will protest against any attempt to exert pressure that threatens freedom of expression.,” Hansson said.
