SR and The Local

The Local is not responsible for the content of blog comments.

Some of you may have noticed that some of The Local’s articles last month bore a striking resemblance to certain articles published on the website of Radio Sweden, the English-language branch of SR, Sweden’s public service radio organization. Closer examination revealed that more than a dozen news articles were pretty much copied and pasted from The Local, and some were read aloud on the radio.

We made inquiries with Radio Sweden, who took down the articles and apologised to us personally. On Wednesday, an article about this appeared on the website of media industry magazine Resum, after which SR published a clarification in English and Swedish on its website.

We were naturally disappointed that this happened in the first place, fearing that our readers could conclude that we had plagiarised Radio Sweden. We are reassured by SR’s clarification and thank them for their prompt response.

James Savage,
Editor.
