Abstract [en]

The expert role is often an important component in televised news reports. Experts contributes with comments, facts and analysis that will help viewers understand the news and its context. SVT has been broadcasting news since 1958 and has previously been criticized for a skewed gender representation. In this essay, 29 news broadcasts from SVT’s news program ”Rapport” have been analyzed. The result have concluded that male experts, in accordance with previous research, dominated the news broadcasts. The most common subject that a female expert spoke about was ”politics”, and the most common subject male experts spoked about was ”economy”.This essay notes that previous research which describe that men speaks on the so called ”hard news”, while women talk about the ”soft news”, is not consistent with this essays results. For example, women dominated the hard news category ”war”. This was partly due to SVT and their usage of ”in-house experts”, also known as journalists hired by SVT. The results have also shown that experts usually were white and middle-aged. The most used political affiliation was either of the two government parties, Miljöpartiet and Socialdemokraterna.
