This article discusses a book about the Danish State Television and Radio Company, DR. The author of the book, Christian S. Nissen, former director of DR, argues that Danish politicians have not been mature enough to let DR adopt to the threats from big international media like You-Tube and Netflix. Such companies are conquering the Danish market with unfair methods and thereby, according to Nissen, weakening Danish society. In this article, it is argued that Nissen's book is a biased defense for DR that is steeped in the old world of flow TV. Despite presenting himself as a former researcher and referring to research literature, Nissen's use of such literature is superficial or wrong.
