Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The study aims to investigate whether the Swedish press needs clearer guidelines on how to publish statements from the Swedish Press Council, PON, in both newspapers and on online news sites. The study also includes trying to define the most suitable design for easily accessible and ethical publications of the councils statements. Qualitative interviews with publishers, a media scholar and “Pressombudsmannen”, PO, is analyzed with theories of the press ethical self-regulation and media accountability. The result shows that the Press Council's statements are too long and inaccessibly designed. The council's guidelines are outdated and lacks relevance in the current media climate. Solutions are proposed in the form of popular versions of the statements as well as suggestions for new guidelines.
