Swedish Television News: Driven by the Invicible Hand
2002 (Swedish)In: Rhodes Journalism Review, no 21Article in journal (Other academic) Published
This essay is based on a PhD thesis in which Camilla Hermansson assesses how Swedish television journalism portrayed environmental, consumption and lifestyle issues from 1987 to 1998.Hermansson argues that TV contributed to an ideological shift in Swedish society. Previously the reporting focused on crisis and disaster and government’s efforts to manage these through legislation, but recently the journalism has bought into market ideology and portrays environmental issues through the discourses of individual consumer choices and confidence in technology.
