QUOTE OF THE DAY: The Finnish media and fueling the hostile environment

by , under Enrique Tessieri

When I was a young journalist, the editor of the Buenos Aires Herald approached me and gave me some sound advice.

“Remember,” I recall him saying to me, “words are like bullets. Fairness in reporting a story is important. You don’t need a bazooka to kill an ant.

Following what the media is writing about Abdirahim Husu Hussein, this golden rule of responsible and fair journalism could not be truer. Destroying people with bazookas in a hostile environment against migrants and minorities is opinionated and racist journalism.

The media is part of Finland’s racism problem.
