Abstract [en]

This study is a qualitative study of how two Swedish newspapers Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter reported about the former Swedish Prime Minister Thorbjörn Fälldin between the dates of 1/12-1979 to 1/5-1980. The reason I chose this time span is due to the nuclear power referendum that took place in March 23 1980 in Sweden. The study uses the theory of agenda-setting journalism, which is partly about how media reporting affects the users. The study include 41 articles written about Thorbjörn Fälldin, one of the articles is presented in the background of this study where Aftonbladet´s journalist Börjelind reported so harshly against Fälldin that the Prime Minister pressed charges against Aftonbladet. The main task of the study is to elucidate how two newspapers whose leader pages have different political appellation and how they reported about Fälldin before and after the nuclear power referendum that took place in Sweden in March 1980. The study also highlights the political languages ​​that the newspapers report in, where Aftonbladet is clearly against Fälldin. Aftonbladet's reporting differed from Dagens Nyheter, where Aftonbladet repported harshly about Fälldin before and after the nuclear power referendum, while Dagens Nyheter is softer in its reporting on Fälldin. The people that Aftonbladet's access space in their paper tend to be critical of Prime Minister Fälldin where Dagens Nyheter rather highlights people who are positive about Fälldin. Aftonbladet chooses to go roughly at Fälldin, they writes several articles that Fälldin should resign, Dagens Nyheter writes more nuanced and demands for resignation are only mentioned once.
