I know that Sweden does not take part in tonight's semi final, but still. Today's reports in the newspapers made me seriously depressed. Whiney, depressing, patronising. "All these foreigners singing bad songs-blah-blah-blah!" When did Sweden turn into the United Kingdom? Where is Per Bjurman or Annika Sundbaum-Melin when you need them?
And the best thing... A short snippet about "superstar" Diana Gurtskaya, who must be a snob since the reports have not once seen her without sunglasses. How can they possibly have missed that she is... blind?
Quite surprisingly, Dagens Nyheter had by far the best report. When I worked there, they hardly even mentioned the contest. Things change, for sure.
