The story is most likely not fake, but I would bet that the whole story is not being told. There is too much news that is spun to promote a desired reaction and to form public opinion. That type of journalism should be confined to the editorial and opinions section.

Yes The Locals dead. Please don't ask why do I still come here. If you really want to know, well when I am on a high I need something to bring me back down to earth.

What's more sobering is the garbage The Local reports, never a TRUE story about what's really is happening in Sweden, now that's what you call fake news.

Not in direct relation to the above mentioned story but certainly in reference to type of journalism that is so common today. Currently in Mexico, there is a caravan of people who are making their way from Central America and trying to enter into the U.S. Almost every news story (whether it be televised or in the print media) shows a "random" young mother and her children. Almost every story. This is a thinly veiled attempt to promote sympathy. Many of these immigrants are young men, but they are almost never shown.


Whatever your stance is on illegal immigration, the news media should deliver a balanced story that shows all sides and not spin the story in such a manner as to shape public response...unless the story is clearly labeled as an opinion or an editorial.

I saw a lot of this type of "promotional journalism" when the immigrant crisis in Europe was in full swing. Although the vast majority of the immigrants and refugees where young males, the stories almost always focused on young women and children.

Glad to see there are some people who are awake and listening/seeing to what the left is trying to do to America...And Western Europe...

This whole scenario is the prophecy of the novel "The Camp of The Saints" come true and is the beginning of the end of western civilization as we know it...

Journalism is the voice of the voiceless. They are trained to report all evils without compromise and they will never be on the side of the oppressors. Their mission is not to be neutral but to be balanced and fair.

That is what I used to believe, too. Perhaps that is why I get so angry and feel so violated when the supposedly unbiased news slides more and more into the propaganda realm.

I want to hear all sides of the story so that I can make up my own mind. I don't want Big Brother telling me how to think. That kinda sh*t is dangerous.
