The purpose of this essay is to investigate how the Swedish media framed the political party, the Swedish Democrats, two weeks prior to the election of parliament in 2014. This essay starts with the historical background of the political party, the Swedish Democrats, and continues with the theoretical framework for the essay. The theoretical framework consists of three theories: framing, media logic and media’s role in the democratic society. The essay’s main problem is presented as the question: What media image was there of the Swedish Democrats before the election of parliament in 2014? The main problem is answered by using a quantitative content analysis on the essay’s empirical material, 68 news articles from four Swedish daily newspapers. Results show that the Swedish Democrats have been framed negatively in the media prior to the election of parliament in 2014.
