War In the caucuses, US political corruption, lockdowns, travel restrictions, Brexit negotiations, and a world wide pandemic I got up this morning to see the latest developments on these things and this is what the swedes are talking about, good to know I live in such a hotbed of world affairs and cutting edge journalism.

A friggin' newspaper?! Just maybe?

Swedish "news-papers" are like comics, but less funny. Is there any decent Swedish news source?

I watch France 24. Beats pretty much anything else on offer where I am. And I also watch in the wee hours, sometimes.

It is indeed, it's what would or does lead to a happy life. Life has no purpose in a cosmic sense, we are just incredibly fortunate to have consciousness. If folk decide to spend their life complaining and being unhappy, rather than the opposite then it their loss. There is no second chance.

I left out which newspapers, but for instance for my sanity, I only read newspapers that are not Swedish, and do not watch Swedish TV at home, but Dutch and German TV via satellite. More content, more exiting, and less bullshit.

DW is as good as ever. There was an interesting interview of what's her face...oh, ya, Ann "Batikh?xa" Linde...oh man...so precious to watch a Swedish politician get crushed by real questions. It so rarely ever happens because the Swedish "elites" stay so close to their small inbred Meatballian bubble.

Man does she talk some shite!

We do not have a Swedish TV package we subscribe to streaming only. For newspapers I read DN, NY Times, and FT. Sometimes If i want a quick news update I have the BBC on in the mornings which is sadly breakfast tv and a shower of shite most of the time... it is better to watch the news channel on the BBC after 10am.

Why did you move here if you only continue to watch U.K. or New York news. At least I watch the Swedish news.
