Freedom of press seminar

Today I had the pleasure of facilitating a freedom of press seminar. In Sweden it is now 250 years ago that the laws of the freedom of expression and freedom of the press came into being. The event was a manifestation with four editors of online-only newspapers that have all come into being because of a need for local journalism. The guest of honour was Nils Hanson who is the editor in chief of Uppdrag Granskning – the main public service produced tv-show of investigative journalism in Sweden.

Grävande journalistik – god kraft i samhället

I dag modererade jag ett pressfrihetsseminarium i Hässleholm. Det är nu 250 år sedan lagarna om yttrandefrihet och pressfrihet lanserades i Sverige. Eventet var en manifestation med chefredaktörerna från fyra skånska webbtidningar som samtliga växt fram på grund av ett behov av kvalitativ lokaljournalistik. Hedersgästen var Nils Hanson, ansvarig utgivare på Uppdrag Granskning – SVTs största tv-program baserat på granskande journalistik.
