Talande tystnad om Uppdrag Granskning

En vecka har gått sedan SVT's Uppdrag Granskning den 31 maj sände ett reportage där riksdagsmän fick tre relativt enkla frågor om tre grundläggande och centrala begrepp i den nya EU konstitutionen. (pdf)

Hur uppnås kvalificerad majoritet i ministerrådet?
Vad är exklusiv befogenhet?
Vad menas med medborgarinitiativ?

Resultatet var skrämmande. 19 av totalt 37 tillfrågade hade inte ett enda rätt svar på någon av frågorna, trots att de redan hade tagit ställning och rimligtvis borde ha satt sig in i frågan. En del vägrar helt enkelt att svara på frågorna.

Andelen rätta svar förbättrades efter lunch, då partikanslierna försåg sina riksdagsledamöter med frågorna och förvarnade dem att Uppdrag Granskning var i huset; socialdemokraterna skickade till och med svaren till frågorna.

Detta är anmärkningsvärt eftersom riksdagsmännen anser att frågan om en europeisk konstitution är alldeles för svår för svenska folket att avgöra vid en folkomröstning.

Hur mycket uppmärksamhet fick programmet i medierna? En sökning på Presstext och tidningarnas egna sökfunktioner visar att programmet omnämns (förutom i insändare) i totalt 2 (två) artiklar, båda publicerade i Dagens Nyheter. Den ena är en tv-krönika, "Rumpan bar. Underhållande journalistik men knappast bra." av Johan Croneman; den andra en ledare signerad Johannes Åman, "En journalistik som gör människor till maskar och robotar".

De båda artiklarna har gemensamt att de lägger vikt vid Josefssons "ohederliga" metoder, samtidigt som de tonar ned politikernas ansvar. Croneman skriver bland annat: "Jag har svårt att nämna en enda person i min egen omgivning som hade klarat dessa tre frågor om den nya EU-konstitutionen. Jag hade själv gått bet på alla tre."

En viktig detalj som Croneman glömmer nämna är givetvis att han och hans vänner (förutsatt att de inte är riksdagsmän) inte skall, eller snarare inte får, rösta om förslaget till EU's grundlag. Man kan förvänta sig att våra avlönade riksdagsmän är mer insatta i politik än en TV-recensent.

Croneman sträcker sig långt i sitt friskrivande av politikernas ansvar, då han skriver: "[Uppdrag Granskning] hade givetvis aldrig ställt frågorna om de inte redan haft koll på att riksdagsmännen inte skulle klara av att svara."

Åman menar å sin sida att "den moraliska poängen" med är "mindre uppenbar". Den "moraliska poängen" är tvärtom fullkomligt uppenbar: Hur kan man som riksdagsman redan ha tagit ställning för ett förslag när man inte är insatt ämnet och inte ens kan svara på de enklaste av frågor? Tyder inte det på en viss dubbelmoral när man samtidigt anser att det svenska folket är alldeles för korkat för att få ta ställning i frågan?

Varför går medierna i politikernas ledband? De slår gärna på sin egen trumma och kallar sig själva den "granskande statsmakten". Men då politikerna (förutsatt att de inte befinner sig på vänsterkanten) väl granskas, kallas det för en journalistisk "freakshow" som stärker politikerföraktet.

Varför denna massiva tystnad om politikernas bristande kunskaper i en avgörande politisk fråga som debatteras livligt just nu, inte endast i Sverige utan runt om i Europa? Detta, om något, lär spä på föraktet både mot politiker och medier.

Viktig synpunkt!

Jag hörde en riksdagsman förklara för sin fanclub hur illvilligt upplägget var, och att kollegorna minsann gjort sitt bästa för att varsko varandra =/

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.

Generic Viagra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Generic Propecia is a medication used for the treatment of prostate cancer and pattern baldness in men. It is the main ingredient in two drugs – Proscar for prostate cancer and Propecia for pattern baldness. Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.
