What I have learned, the Finnish media isn't that free. Take this EU farming support (don't know the correct term yet, but the amount of money they give to support farming). Now we have a prime minister that is from the central party. And basically that means he does what the farmers tell him to do. Well, he himself went to the conference, negotiated Finland the worst agricultural funds one could, and at the same time we ended up paying support to France and England. Now there was a big rumble about how my party, SDP and the central party were arguing and they were accusing my party's leader for driving bad politics on the farmers.
Well that's all because the fact that we lost all the support money was never revealed. The current prime minister told the press that they couldn't make it public, and since 95% of the finnish media is owned by the righties they stood behind him.
It's a bit off topic, but it's an opinion... and the truth about this.
basically I find that a huge amount of people's opinions are based on what the media tells them, and the media is manipulated all the time. Yeh, I won't go deeper into it, it's pretty small scale and boring.
