Abstract [en]

The Iraq conflict has been around for a while. During the autumn of 2002 the problem was brought to the fore and received a large amount of coverage in the media. Due to the influence the media has over how we perceive the world, the need for them to be objective and matter of fact, when reporting the news, is crucial. We thought it would be interesting to see if the media does rapport certain news objectively. Because the choice of media formats is so large we choose to examine newspaper articles. We choose to compile a quantity and quality content analysis of the Svenska Dagbladet and Aftonbladet. We chose these two newspapers because of several factors, firstly one is a broadsheet and the others a tabloid. Secondly they do not share the same political bias. The aim of the study was to examine how the two newspapers presented the Iraq conflict, if there were any differences in the reporting and if so which. As a base for the study we have used Hvitfelts different points for newsrapporting of crises and Westerståhls Objectivity Concept. The result of the study showed no real difference in the reporting of the conflict. What we did notice however was that it appeared that the newspapers did give a misleading picture of the conflict. Both newspapers lost some of their objectivity by using emotive language, something that shouldn’t be found in news reporting. The biggest difference between the publications was their standpoint on the issue. With such limited material no general conclusions can be drawn about the reporting of the Iraq conflict. We are however of the opinion that it shows the general tendencies of the Svenska Dagbladets and Aftonbladets reporting of the conflict.
