Swedish Media: The Bastion of Hatred for the State of Eritrea

Richard Myrenberg hell bent on sowing seeds of hatred between Sweden and Eritrean people
A certain Richard Myrenberg is one of the irresponsible Swedish media correspondents that are guilty of sowing seeds of hatred and discord among the people of Eritrea and Sweden.

The mainstream Swedish media has yet once again excelled themselves in disseminating fresh vicious attacks on the state of Eritrea. This time it was the state-owned Swedish Radio P1 which in a program called “Good Morning World” featured an eight-minute audio documentary about an alleged Eritrean refugee in Kenya on 4th October 2015.

Renowned for its bias and open hatred for the Eritrean establishment, the program lived up to its expectation of fabrications, distortion of facts and discrediting the Eritrean Government.

These incessant and cruel stories hurt us to the point that we have started to feel singled out and persecuted by the Italian media.

Dear President, if you counted how many times in the last two years the Italian journalists have abused the name of Eritrea, you would comprehend that our country – out of the 54 in Africa – is the main target of this morbid attention. That way you would understand our deep discomfort.  Continue reading Letter from Eritrean Communities in Italy to the Italian Order of Journalists
