Två fall av politikervåld - Två skilda rapporteringar
The aim of this study is to examine how two cases of assault against Swedish politicians have been covered in the largest Swedish newspapers, and the most viewed/listened to newscasts on TV and radio. The two politicians were Fredrick Federley of the Centre Party and Issa Issa of the Swedish Democratic Party. The research questions are the following: – What did the coverage of the assault of Fredrick Federley and the assault of Issa Issa look like? – Why did the coverage look like this? – Was the assessment made by the media reasonable, if you consider our news values theory?
