How to increase interest in current affairs

by Feòrag

Sweden: The Swedish state broadcaster is somewhat embarassed after pornography was shown in the background to a news report.

A five-minute news update shown at the weekend included explicit scenes from a Czech porn movie on a monitor behind the anchor Peter Dahlgren.

This is highly embarrassing and unfortunate, said SVT's Per Yng.

The monitor had been switched by workers who had then forgotten to change it back, he told agency AP.

No viewers complained.
