Abstract [en]

 The aim of this article is to analyse attitudes towards news on old and new platforms. Our study used two types of independent variable: generation, which - along with age - is one of the most important factors explaining news media practices; and news consumption, which is strongly related to attitudes. We utilised a national mail survey of 3000 people in the Swedish population (aged 16-85) to conduct the study. The response rate in the 2010 study was a little over 60 per cent, and the survey gives a significant picture of news attitudes in the population. The findings generally show a strong degree of support for traditional news media such as television and printed newspapers. However, this support is far stronger among the older generations than the younger - who, to a larger extent, express support for other forms of news distribution, in particular the internet and social media networks.
