Independent Swedish Media

Somewhat off the topics of this blog, as most people in Sweden today are unable to find even a single newspaper that is independent of the parties that are represented in parliament, and as this situation has turned the state into a reality-averse bubble, here’s a selection of relatively independent media.

Comments? = Are comments usually allowed; according to which comment system?
G = Google/Blogspot, W = WordPress, ✔︎ = In-house.

Free? = Is all content free or does some content require subscription?

Ac.? = Are they independent of state financed academic institutions?

Company/Ass. (Brands) Comments? Free? Ac.? Link
Cornucopia? G ✔︎ ✔︎
In Beijing W ✔︎ ✔︎
Blendow (Dagens Juridik) ✔︎ + ✔︎
IDG ✔︎ ✔︎
Spanaren ✔︎ ✔︎
I Öst ✔︎ ✔︎
Curie ✔︎ ✔︎ Nope
Forskning och Framsteg ✔︎ Nope
FT News Gr. OÜ (Fria Tider) + ✔︎

Comments to this article that mention or suggests news papers or media sites that receive grants from the state (Presstöd/Partistöd), that publish whole articles from the monopoly news agency or that are controlled within the so called Public Service [sicut] framework, will be removed as the topic is independent media. Comments that suggest news sites that might really be independent are most welcome, as are corrections.
