Abstract [en]

In this study, we looked at how balanced the various christian denominations in Sweden were raised in the news, on the basis of the requirement for balanced reporting. To measure the balance, we utilized Harcup and O'Neill’s news values and studied to what degree these values occurs in association with news articles that address the various denominations. The following denominations were selected for this study; Word of Life, the Pentecostal Church, Jehovah's witnesses, the Catholic Church, the Salvation Army and the Swedish Church. These denominations were then studied on the basis of news values in four of Sweden’s largest news organisations, in terms of audience numbers. We selected Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet, Sveriges Radio and SVT. What we found was that the Pentecostal Church, the Catholic church and the Swedish church was lifted in a similar and balanced way, while Jehovah's Witnesses, the Salvation Army and Word of Life only were lifted out of a few of the news values. We also found differences between the news organisations and their usage of the news values.We found, for example, a significant deviation in Aftonbladets usage of the news values “good news” and “bad news”.
