Från barnprogramledare till knarkare: En analys av Expressens rapportering om Ola Lindholm

Abstract [en]

Media has enormous powers. It influences both our views and values and determines what is relevant in society. When the power is abused and media submits to economic factors, has its own agendas and pushes the boundaries of what is allowed to be published, the consequences for the individual can be devastating. The purpose of this study has been to examine how the newspaper Expressen reported about the famous children’s tv-host Ola Lindholm’s suspected drug offence. 
I have made a critical discourse analysis of seventeen news articles relating to this. The study shows that Expressen has breached the rules of established media ethics, has blown the incident out of proportion and has endeavored to prove Lindholm’s guilt and to make him appear in a bad light. The newspaper does not live up to the basic journalistic ideals of an accurate, comprehensive, impartial and independent journalism which has the public’s interest and best in mind.
