Confronting Value Strain: Press Coverage of Health Care Reform in Sweden and the United States
1999 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This dissertation examines the journalistic discourse surrounding health care reform debates in Sweden and the US in the early 1990's. It found that in both countries, the challenging value (i.e. collectivism in US, individualism in Sweden) was treated less favorably than the dominant value both in the journalistic text and in the choice of actors allowed to speak through the media. Journalists in both countries protected their own dominant value and helped to resist core value change, although they tended to allow actors to express challenging values more loudly than they themselves would do. Study based on qualitative and quantitative content analysis of New York Times, USA Today, Dagens Nyheter and Expressen 1992-1995.
