STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- A Swedish news channel said precautions are being taken after a pornographic film became part of a news broadcast.
Viewers of TV4 News, a 24-hour news station, said they noticed a pornographic film playing on a TV screen behind the anchor Monday morning while he was interviewing a correspondent in Moscow about Syrian President Bashar Assad's weekend speech, The Local.se reported Monday.
TV4 news editor Andreas Haglind said the 10-minute porn problem was likely related to a computer server in the studio connected to other networks operated by C More Entertainment, which owns TV4 News as well as networks broadcasting erotic content.
"It's not like we were directly broadcasting porn," he told the Swedish-language Expressen newspaper. "Put simply, it's crap that it happened. We're going to do everything we can so that it doesn't happen again."
