"Klickokratin" och de vita fläckarna : En kvalitativ intervjustudie om journalistikens demokratiska roll och framtid
Sammanfattning: Journalism is a part of the foundation of a democracy and is responsible for giving a wide view of the society, examining the authorities and making sure to give a nuanced picture of reality. With the rapid flow of information given to us by the digital media, journalism has gained tremendous competition from third parties and private individuals. At the same time, surveys have been carried out where politicians and press secretaries find that journalists today are unable to cover reality to the extent that would be desired. The economic situation has meant that many local offices have had to be closed down, which has contributed to white spots that are no longer covered in Sweden. In this survey, semi-structured interviews were conducted with parliamentary politicians, journalists and press secretaries in the political arena to get answers on how they view the journalism's democratic role, the future of journalism and how digitalization has affected journalism. The answers were thematised and analyzed against theories of media convergence, journalism's democratic role and political communication. In several themes that were found among the answers, there is consensus in the interviewees' answers and opinions questions. For example, journalism faces major challenges in the future in a society with easy ways of disseminating disinformation, and that journalists themselves need to find the solution to preserve their relevance and credibility.
