The public service-mission in Italian television : A content analysis of the newsprogram Tg1:s broadcasts (English)
The main question this bachelor thesis aims to answer is how the public service program Tg1’s news broadcasts may look. The following questions were used to discuss thetendencies of the result: How can the distribution of the news categories appear in Tg1’sbroadcasts? Can the main news be considered as impartial and objective in its linguisticand pictorial representation?
To answer the aforementioned question I chose to do a combined study, using aquantitative content analysis and a qualitative content analysis.
To lead my research, I focused on two requirements underlined by public servicebroadcasters, namely, objectivity and impartiality, and diversity. The outcome shows thatthe diversity in Tg1’s broadcast is disproportionate and that the pictorial representation isnot impartial and objective without the linguistic part. Then, additionally to mytheoretical choice, the public service role in a democracy, a discussion about the resultand its consequences has been set up.
