Freedom of speech… yey!

I was cleaning my desktop when I found this document that a friendly soul sent me last year. It’s in Swedish and it says that a person wanted P3 (state owned radio) to be tried for playing “Murder Murdoch”. According to the person P3 violated their duty to be politically impartial by playing it, but the authority ruling in these cases (Granskningsnämnden) took no action against P3 – so it’s ok to play the song. That’s freedom of speech at it’s best!

I just thought about the consequences a conviction would have had. So many songs are political, most of them I would say. I mean, doesn’t most of the bling bling rappers advocate capitalism for example? They’re extremely political in my book. Maybe I should write to Granskningsnämnden about that…
