Abstract [en]

Within the journalistic profession lays a commonly accepted normative view stating that objectivity is an ideal to seek. The aim of this bachelor is to study Swedish sportswriters on local newspaper and their views of journalistic objectivity, and themselves in comparison to the traditional ideals. We want to study how local sportswriter work against their ideal and if factors like age and education affect their view of themselves and ther ideal.

We have done eight semistructured deepinterviews that all build on theories and studies of the traditional ideal of journalists. The interviewed are all sportreporters, at four different newspapers. We have done active selection of participants based on age and education. The result shows a great resemblance regarding the ideal, both between the participants in our study and compared to the traditional ideals. We have chosen to summarize the ideals our participants had in a couple of key words. Our result also shows that the ideal is pretty much the same regardless of age, but that there might be reason to believe that there is a difference in how well it works in practice.

Abstract [sv]

Det finns inom det journalistiska hantverket en allmänt vedertagen normativ bild av att objektivitet är något eftersträvansvärt. Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att undersöka hur den bild lokala sportjournalister i Sverige har av journalistisk objektivitet och sin egen yrkesroll i förhållande till de traditionella idealen. Vi vill undersöka hur lokala sportjurnalister arbetar mot sin idealbild och om faktorerna ålder och utbildning kan tänkas spela in i självbilden. Vi har genomfört åtta semistrukturerade samtalsintervjuer som alla bygger på teori och rådande forskning om den traditionella idealbilden för journalisten. De intervjuade är alla lokala sportjournalister på fyra olika redaktioner, där vi gjort ett medvetet urval gällande ålder och utbildning. Resultatet visar på en stor överensstämmelse när det gäller idealbilden, både mellan respondenterna och gentemot den normativa bilden. Vi har valt att sammanfatta det ideal våra respondenter givet oss i några ledord. Resultatet visar också att idealbilden är ganska lik över generationsgränserna, men att det däremot kan finnas anledning att tro att det skiljer sig i hur väl den efterlevs.
