I shouldn't be amazed by the programs on TV, but the recent Fidel Castro theme is another example of communist propaganda and how the Swedish journalists are showing their real (blood red) colors.

From the article, Storm grows over Swedish TV's Castro night.

Criticism of Swedish Television's Fidel Castro theme night is growing. Now, several national newspapers' editorials have attacked the SVT special linked to the Cuban dictator's 80th birthday celebrations.

Dagens Nyheter feared that SVT was lining up "a tribute to Castro" while Expressen called the programme "a disaster". "SVT is celebrating by bowing down before the bearded dictator," wrote Svenska Dagbladet. (, 12/02/06.)

Instead of showing several hours about the socialist "paradise," the Swedish television should have shown respect to the victims of Castro's dictatorship, by having a black screen for a silent minute.
