The Icelandic Fox News

The Icelandic Sean Hannity is Agnes Bragadóttir of Morgunbladid.

Like Fox News, Morgunbladid has been the beacon of right-wing politics. Its previous editors lasted decades in their job, never investigating, never disclosing, never questioning the powers that were, if they were right-wing and Independent Party.

This looks like changing with a new editor who is renowned for being his own man. But Agnes Bragadottir, like Sean Hannity is still someone elses woman and in the past weeks she has barked at the nation not to look for those responsible for the disaster. Instead she has published interviews with the Prime Minister and Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson, former owner of Landsbanki that read like their own personal blogs.

Welcome to the all-spin zone, Agnes Bragadottir’s Morgunbladid.
