Abstract [en]

The mass media play a crucial role since it has become the main source for political information for citizens. However, even if the news coverage of election campaigns is important and has been at the center of political communication research for a long time, there is still a lack of comparative studies in this area. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate the election news coverage in Spain and Sweden. The study draws on the concept of framing. By comparing the framing of politics in election news coverage in two vastly different democratic countries, the study will enable a deeper understanding of how the election news coverage is shaped by national media systems and political systems. The empirical method used is quantitative content analysis of the election news coverage in three newspapers in each country: El País, El Mundo and ABC in Spain, and Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, and Aftonbladet in Sweden. The time period includes the three weeks prior to the Swedish election in 2002 and the Spanish election in 2004, held on March 14. Differences found in the election coverage will be discussed by authors in order to draw some conclusions, focusing on the importance of national media systems and political systems in understanding the election news coverage.
