Abstract [en]

Will the discourse in a country effect the way an event is presented in the media? And will the event be presented in similar ways in different countries? These are the questions my paper aims to answer. By using critical discourse analysis I have analyzed the reporting of the Iraqi War in three big newspapers; one from USA, one from Sweden and one from Great Britain.

The results show that the discourse in each country play a big part in how the news get presented in the media, and this is shown in how the news gets reported. The three countries had three different views on the same war.

My study is not to be generalized to represent the countries in whole, but to comment on how the news was shown to the public in the three newspapers from each country.

My conclusion shows that USA:s paper was pro-war, Sweden’s was anti-war and Great Britain took a stand in-between and focused on the soldiers.
