Abstract [en]

In this thesis we investigated how the field of environmental journalism was perceived andworked with by a group of local journalists in the Argentinean region Cuyo. Based on atheoretical framework of gatekeeping and news value, this qualitative research utilizedsemi-structured interviews to investigate which personal, editorial and societal conditions theinterviewees considered of importance regarding environmental news reporting. The resultsof this study suggest that though many of the interviewees harboured a personal interest inenvironmental matters, these were not considered relevant or news worthy enough to beassigned the necessary journalistic resources for a more in depth news coverage.Furthermore, they suggest that environmentally related news are perceived as more complexand hard to tell than the ones of other fields, and that the level of education and knowledgeregarding this rarely was felt as sufficient among the interviewed journalists.
