Today we have an absolutely classic example of fake news to report, as Fox News talking head Bill O’Reilly interviews Nils Bildt, a man he identifies as “a Swedish defense and national security advisor.” O’Reilly is, of course, trying to continue hyping Donald Trump’s lies about a nonexistent Swedish terror attack, by promoting more lies that Sweden has turned into a nightmare hellscape of terror and explosions and rapes, all caused by refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries.

Just one small problem for Fox and O’Reilly; Nils Bildt is actually a convicted criminal with no connection to Swedish national security.

Yes, that’s right. Fox News tried to shore up Donald Trump’s fake news with a fake security expert. And not only that — he’s a criminal. Excellent work as usual, Bill-o.

Friday the question was the focus of debate during the conservative Fox-presenter Bill O’Reillys show, where Nils Bildt confirmed Donald Trumps negative view of Sweden. Nils Bildt was introduced by Fox as a ”Swedish defense and national security advisor”, which has caused more than a few raised eyebrows.

Marie Pisäter at the Swedish Defense Ministry says that no-one called Nils Bildt works there. ”We have no spokesman by that name”, she said. The Foreign Office also denies that he works there. ”We do not know who he is.”

Nils Bildt is the son of Sven Tolling, well know in Swedish equestrian circles. Nils Bildt emigrated from Sweden in 1994. Nine years later he changed his last name from Tolling to Bildt, and he now runs several security companies in the United States. His last known address, according to Swedish registers, is in Tokyo. It is unclear if his companies are still in business.

Nils Bildt, who spoke on Fox News about crime in Sweden, is convicted of a violent offence himself, according to documents from Arlington General District Court in Virginia. Bildt was arrested on the 19th of June, 2014, for assaulting a law enforcement person and for obstruction of justice, after threatening an official. He was sentenced to one year in prison on the 10th of November the same year. He was also convicted of public inebriation at the same time. Nils Bildt, in an e-mail to DN, says he is ”unaware of the allegations” and therefore cannot comment.

Johan Wiktorin, a former defense analyst at the Military Intelligence and Security Service, MUST, says that he has never heard of Nils Bildt. ”He is unknown in Sweden as an expert on national security. The depiction of Sweden as a problem country in American media is a disturbing trend.”
