The Government will increase funding in journalism, according to an agreement between seven parliamentary parties, reports Svenska Dagbladet. The Sweden Democrats stay outside the agreement. ”Our aim is to contribute to predictability and good long-term prerequisites for investigative journalism in a changing media landscape,” says Alice Bah Kuhnke (MP), the Minister for Culture and Democracy. The total press grant will be 20% higher from January 1, 2019, compared to today’s level. The proposal includes an increase in distribution and operating funds. According to the media survey, 43% of citizens experience that they are sometimes, or often not sufficiently informed before decisions about changes in the local environment.
