I only hate the Russian media more. ))) and that's only because I read and speak Russian, so I get a sense of everything which is written about Canada...
That's because the two biggest papers in Sweden are just that. And they always scream the loudest. Yeah, they'll get you covered but you'll also have to eat all the sensationalistic crap they spew. But if you take a tsn.ca equivalent like hockeysverige.se, than you'll get just fine, proper, journalism.
