Abstract [en]

The U.S. came close to hit their debt ceiling and had some severe trouble getting a federal budget in order in the fall 2013, which raised a global news echo around the world. The purpose of this study is to look at of how the Swedish newspapers framed this specific event; we wanted to find the dominated similarities and differences in the different articles as well as see if our domestic perspective appeared in the frames. In order to come to a conclusion we first read all the material published between the dates of the 2th to the 17th of October in our chosen newspapers, we then did a mapping schedule and sorted through the articles, two of our main sorting points were “the dominating framing” and “the dominating operator” in each and every article. Based on that result we used a qualitative content analysis approach in the shape of a framing analysis of a lesser number of articles. The result showed that this event can be framed in a variety of ways. Some of the dominating frames focused on economic consequences from a domesticated perspective, some focused on the positivity and  some framed it as a race against the clock. This concludes that the dominating frame in each article was often individual, while some of the less dominating frames in each article had similarities with each other, although the differences were more prominent.
