En studie av nyhetsvärderingen i det postmodernistiska tillståndet

Abstract [en]

Our aim with this empirical survey was to explore if the processes that are in involved in what transforms an event to become a piece of news (news evaluation) in Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter is up to date with present day society. In order to achieve this we found it necessary to analyze a current edition of each newspaper, and compare those to some older edition. We chose the year 2000, the year before the outbreak of the “terror war”; and the edition of 1973, the year that preceded the great oil crisis, which according to many social scientists marks a threshold between the “new” and the “old”. The fundamental structural change in world economy after 1974 was in the light of what we know now a corner stone in the development of late capitalism and its implications. The technological evolutions in the last decades have altered the social, cultural and institutional fabric of society. These alterations have by many been labelled as “the post modern”. This concept is broad and complex. However, we have limited our focus to post modern phenomena that are related to our empirical survey of news evaluation. Our findings point to significant changes in the news evaluation of both Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter, especially so in the case of the former news paper (even though the changes are in some cases statistically insignificant and contradictory). What was most surprising with the empirical data was the fact that Dagens Nyheter, in spite of the escalation of the globalization process in recent years, focus on domestic news to a much larger extent in the 2000 edition.
