Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If you have a media landscape where at least a substantial minority of the newsies are able to find their arse with both hands, a flashlight, tower guidance and a ground control radar.

In Denmark, we were lucky in the last election cycle that Naser Khader proved so singularly incompetent - because the press positively drooled all over him until he started putting his foot in his mouth on a regular basis. If he had been even marginally competent, it is not impossible that an outright bomb-thrower-neoliberal party could have gotten four to six percent instead of the 2.5 they actually got...

Now, granted, a neolib and an outright fascist are not quite the same. But close enough for discomfort.
