Deb-02: What kind of liberalism in the editorial pages?

In December 2016, the newspaper Dagens Nyheter published a series of three articles by Mattias Hagberg where he criticized the change of political stance in two other newspapers, namely Göteborgs-Posten and Expressen. These had started to comment critically about problems in suburbs with a high proportion of recently-arrived immigrants. Hagberg argued that they had therefore moved away from their professed liberal stance and adopted a 'rightist' (conservative, populist) perspective. This led to a debate on several related topics, including what one shall mean by the term 'liberalism'.
