Finland’s tabloids, Iltalehti and Ilta-Sanomat, are part of the country’s racism and Islamophobia problem. Back in 2015, Ilta-Sanomat stated on a billboard that 10,000 “illegal refugees” will come to Finland.
This biased and racist journalism exposes how biased and unbalanced some Finnish media is.
In their ever-alarming way to boost sales, Iltalehti led a story with the following headline:
“This is how Finland prepares if a lot of illegal migrants cross the eastern border: ‘People can sleep safely,” Interior Minister Maria Ohisalo is quoted as saying.
The question: Are people crossing the eastern border “illegal migrants” or asylum seekers?
