Gestaltning av invandrare i svenska dagstidningar inför riksdagsvalen                               – : Rapportering en vecka innan valet 2010 och 2018

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: Distrust of the media's reporting on immigration is a topic that has emerged in recent times, and the topic gets even hotter as Sweden has recently experienced an increase in immigration in recent times (and perhaps most specifically in the fall of 2015). On the one hand, some argue that the media gives an exaggerated positive image of immigration while on the other hand the media claims an exaggerated negative image of immigration, this study intends to provide empirical evidence because I believe it is lacking.             Various media platforms should act as gatekeepers to democracy through a report on society at large, where one of its most important functions would be to examine the elected politicians in order to provide citizens with objective information and a fair picture of what is going on. The media can choose which topics to highlight, which can lead to different topics being given more space, which in turn can affect how citizens perceive situations and thus influence citizens to take a position in different social debates. If the media can influence the actions of the citizens, it is also natural that they influence their opinions and values.             Although newspapers 'news reporting may have been transferred to different social media, I believe that the different daily newspapers are a major factor affecting citizens' opinion formation, at the same time as values ​​and opinions can be conveyed and expressed further in social media.            Against this background, this paper aims to reflect more closely on and analyze how sex different newspapers Aftonbladet, Dala-Demokraten, Dagens Nyheter, Falu Kuriren, Smålandsposten and Svenska Dagbladet choose to report on migration and integration for the parliamentary elections 2010 and 2018. The studies are primarily about the reports and understand how and in which contexts migration and integration were described and embodied. Interesting for this study is to see if we can find any differences regarding the designs between newspapers and years. I also want to look at the reports and see to what extent each newspaper reports on the subject.            In a SOM survey [Society Opinion Media] from 2018, the authors argue that the political foundation has always existed in Swedish media. Although public service has played a major role for Swedish citizens, there has also been criticism. The criticism highlighted is that traditional Swedish media does not give the whole news picture and that it is not possible to avoid the undertone of political bias that figures (ref. in Andersson, Carlander, & Lindgren, 2018, p. 73).      While there is no specific empirical research on the media, its links to political ideology and the trust that is managed and denied by citizens, I believe that there is also an important scientific point in my essay since news media is the primary source of citizen information about society and politics.
