YLE stops their own blogger from ESC party

Blogs are often used to provide a better picture of how people work and Torbjörn Ek who blogs for Aftonbladet and TV7 about the Eurovision Song Contest in Finland does just that. He gives us a “behind the scenes” report and tells us about all the problems he has encountered while working at the event. For example he writes that YLE, the Finnish Broadcasting Company, didn’t allow their own blogger to enter the late night party yesterday “because he had worked too long” and that other participants were stopped too.

But the ESC fans don’t want to listen to that tune. Although they weren’t at the scene, most of the comments to his blog post think that Ek is wrong and that he should stop complaining. Maybe there are times when we are not interested in transparency.
