Swedish news broadcasts porn film

THOSE Swedish folk, eh? They’re all liberal and sexy and attractive! Of course, some Swedes would have you believe otherwise, but as stereotypes go, that’s one of the best ones. The stereotype is going to be furthered even more once you hear that a Swedish news channel accidentally aired a porn film in the background of a live broadcast.

Those lucky souls who tuned into the TV4 News network got to see an erotic flick during a discussion about Russia’s support of Syria (insert your own: Someone getting f**ked by someone else joke, here).

Viewer Danyal Ek told The Local:

“At first I realised I was looking at a naked woman and it quickly became clear she was having sex. It didn’t take long before I realised it was a porn film. The image wasn’t exactly in focus, but it wasn’t hard to figure out what was going on.”

“I had two theories. One is that someone was pissed off after getting fired and put the porno up as act of revenge. My other thought was that someone had simply screwed up.”

The channel reckon it was because the screen was connected to its parent company computers used by other channels, some of which air erotic content.

News editor Andreas Haglind said:

“It’s not like we were directly broadcasting porn. Put simply, it’s crap that it happened. We’re going to do everything we can so that it doesn’t happen again.”
