Porn broadcast stuns news viewers (Sweden)
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- Sweden's state broadcaster SVT on Monday faced ridicule for mistakenly showing a porn movie in the background of a news broadcast over the weekend.

Viewers of a 5-minute news update at midnight Saturday could see explicit scenes from a Czech porn movie on a TV screen behind news anchor Peter Dahlgren.

The monitor -- one of many on the wall of a control room visible behind the studio -- normally shows other news channels during broadcasts.

But staffers who earlier in the evening had watched a sports event on cable channel Canal Plus -- which often shows X-rated films after midnight -- had forgotten to switch it back, said news director Per Yng.

1. Gotta love those Swedes!
( <---- part Swedish )

What I don't get is how Scandinavians are and have always been incredibly open about sex, yet have for hundreds of years had a problem with a low birth rate.

2. it's cause they're so open with sex
all the kids know about and use birth control. Women aren't harrassed about controlling their bodies.

3. OK, that explains the low birthrate in modern times....
...but it doesn't explain the low birthrate over the last millennia or so.
