Porno film shown live on Swedish news

While watching a report on Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad, a porn film played on a studio screen in the background.

The incident took place during a broadcast on 24-hour Swedish news channel as the presenter was interviewing the station’s Moscow correspondent.

Porn movie shown live on Swedish TV

As the journalists discussed Russia’s support for  the Syrian regime, a pornographic film began playing on one of the television screens situated behind the anchor.

“At first I realized I was looking at a naked woman and it quickly became clear she was having sex,” one viewer said.

The erotic film…though blurry…was visible behind the presenter for about 10 minutes during the broadcast.

News editor Andreas Haglind confirmed that the adult film had been shown live, but claimed that didn’t mean that a member of staff was actively watching porn.

He said it was likely the screen was tied to a computer server elsewhere in the studio connected to other channels.
