Fox featured a Swedish "defense and national security adviser" on Thursday discussing the refugee situation in the country, but military and foreign affairs officials in Sweden had no idea who he was.
Echoing what happened after Trump's comments on Sweden, many took to Twitter to mock Fox News for its choice of "expert".
Former Prime Minister of Sweden Carl Bildt told the Washington Post that Nils Tolling was taking after his surname in order to "gain favors", and spokespeople for Swedish defense and security organs that the New York Times spoke to said they have no affiliation with Mr.
Except, according to Dagens Nyheter (DN) neither the Swedish Foreign Ministry, nor the Ministry of Defence have heard of him.
Nils Bildt said it was his professional opinion that crime was running rampant in Sweden because of an influx in migration. "We are unable to socially integrate these people", he said. "You can not have a debate - an open and honest debate - in Sweden about immigration, because if you don't agree with the liberal common agenda, then you are viewed as an outsider or not even taken seriously".
On Sunday, the newspaper Aftonbladet reported that Bildt had expressed interest in 2013 in running for office in Sweden with the nationalist right-wing party Sweden Democrats. Bildt was born in Sweden, the son of Sven Tolling, who is apparently well-known in equestrian circles. In fact, Dagens Nyheter reports that Fox News' Swedish "security advisor" hasn't actually lived in Sweden for over 20 years. He was also fined $111 (£89), which is recorded as paid.

According to local media, he was found next to a plastic bag like those used by USA border patrol to put migrants belongings in. His death came as the Trump administration released a new directive to speed up the deportation of undocumented migrants.
Bildt is also a United States immigrant, and was arrested in June 2014 for assault and battery against a law enforcement office, obstruction of justice and public inebriation after threatening an official. He was sentenced to one year in prison for the offenses.
The executive producer of "The O'Reilly Factor" said Bildt was recommended by people the show's booker consulted while making numerous inquiries about potential guests.
"I had no personal control over what title they chose".
One of the guests, Nils Bildt, was described - both verbally by Bill O'Reilly and in text on the screen - as a "Swedish defense and national security advisor". He told Dagens Nyheter on Friday that he was a USA -based independent analyst, and Fox News had chosen its description of him.
Fox News has defended its decision to book Bildt.
