Att rida på vågen - en innehållsanalys om hur Dagens Nyheter och Aftonbladet speglat flodvågskatastrofen i Asien
2005 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

A catastrophe occured on Boxing Day 2004 that deeply shook Sweden and the entire world. During this period, powerful images and great headlines dominated national and international news. Swedish media was filled with poignant and captivating human stories and none of us was left indifferent. Media’s extensive cover of the tsunami catastrophe attracted our attention and we could see how differently the evening and day-time press chose to portray the catastrophe. While pondering about that, we determined the purpose of this essay and on the basis of the theories regarding newsvalues, we looked into how Dagens Nyheter and Aftonbladet reflected the tsunami catastrophe in Asia. The hypothesis that we developed, lay ground to this essay: Aftonbladet’s reports on Asian tsunami catastrophe were, to a larger extent, founded on sensational news and had more personified articles than Dagens Nyheter did. The method that was used was a descriptive quantitative content analysis. The study that was conducted is based entirely on Dagens Nyheter and Aftonbladet’s paper editions, dated from 27 of December 2004 to 2 of January 2005. The articles we have chosen to analyse are the ones that only cover the tsunami catastrophe. This study was carried out from the point of two variables and the result of these were later placed in three major cathegories. The result of this study supports our hypothesis that Aftonbladet had more personified articles than Dagens Nyheter. The major difference between them is that Dagens Nyheter have taken on the evening press’s way of reporting news. On the other hand, the evening press has approached the tabloid’s way of reporting and the result of this study supports that to a certain extent.
