Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka till vilken utsträckning människor upplever att de påverkas av media i sina attityder och åsikter kring politik, Och studera åldersskillnader mellan åldersgrupperna 18-25 och 65+. Vi ville även undersöka vilken inverkan medias politiska rapportering har på respondenterna. Det gjordes en kvantitativ undersökning i form av en enkätstudie. Enkäter delades ut till 104 respondenter, 52 i åldersgruppen 18-25 och 52 i åldersgruppen 65+. Resultatet visade att det finns vissa ålderskillnader i hur espondenterna upplever påverkan från media i sina politiska åsikter. De äldre upplever att de litar mer på TV och radio än internet medan yngre i större utsträckning litar på internet. Respondenterna visade tendenser till att uppleva att andra människor påverkas mer av media än vad de själva anser sig göra.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to investigate to what extent people experience influence from media and how that affects their attitudes and opinions towards politics, And explore age differences between the age groups 18-25 and 65+. We also wanted to study what influence political media coverage has on the respondents. A quantitative study was made in form of questionnaires that were handed out to 104 respondents, 52 to the age group 18-25 and 52 the age group 65+. The result showed that there are some significant age differences in the experiences of media influence on political views. The older people had a tendency to trust TV and radio more than internet while younger people trust internet to a greater extent. The respondents showed tendencies to believe that other people are more influenced by media than themselves.
