After being fined 45,000 euros Monday by a Finnish court for ethnic agitation by publishing the anti-Semitic writings of Ted Pike, David Duke and others on Magneettimedia, a publication that advertises J. Kärkkäinen’s department store products, a new story appeared in the latest issue criticizing Zionism and the court sentence as “juridical murder” and “liquidating freedom of speech.”
That’s not all in the bizarre Magnettimedia anti-Semitic crusade. Helsingin Sanomat, revealed Saturday the publication’s relationship with Arto Merisalo, the former Nova Group president sentenced in 2012 to prison for numerous bribery and financial graft charges. Both were planning to launch a free newspaper at the end of the year.

According to Merisalo, the new newspaper has no relationship with Magneettimedia.
“It will be more in style of free city newspapers like Tamperelainen or Turkulainen,” he was quoted as saying on Helsingin Sanomat.
Even if Merisalo says that the new complimentary newspaper will be “clearly a business venture,” he didn’t reveal what kinds of stories it will publish.
Just because it will be a business venture is no assurance that it won’t publish anti-Semitic writings. Free newspapers like Helsingin Uutiset write anti-immigrant stories that normally wouldn’t get published in the national media.
Taking into account Magneettimedia’s recent article about Zionism, Kärkkäinen’s anger over the ethnic agitation sentence, and the department store owner’s business relationship with Merisalo, it’s clear that this won’t be the last we’ll read from them.
