    The channel is YLE1 (you could say it is like BBC1 in England) so their news are like an institution to the country. YLE has no commercials and is fully paid by special fees and taxes by the state. They have high profile image on their news programmes and it was totally unsuitable for the morning news. Could you imagine BBC1 news anchor doing the same and keeping his job?

    Wow, Finland really is progressive. The whole youth and glamor requirement for television personalities, even news anchors, that is so prevalent in America is clearly not an issue there.

    Honestly, the guy looks like he stepped right out of 1977.

    “a report on the misconduct of bars selling alcohol. ”
    Wow, that’s great (not) reporting on reporting. So it’s “misconduct” for bars to sell alcohol?
    Please be more clear.

    For what I understand, alcoholism is epidemic in Finland, a country that is exemplary in other aspects. So I don’t see the joke there. He was sacked with due cause.
