Abstract [en]

Election news coverage has a tendency to frame politics as a strategic game, to increase the role of the journalists as interpreters of political issues and events, and to include a conflict frame. These patterns in election news coverage indicate increased mediatization where media logic rather than political logic governs news media content. However, political news research outside of the election campaign indicate that news media is less independent from political actors. Drawing on literature on mediatization, media interventionism, political news journalism, news framing and source use, the purpose of this article is to empirically investigate whether election news coverage is representative of political news journalism in terms of degree of mediatization. The study is based on a systematic comparison of three content analyses based on the same coding schedule and coding procedure from different news coverage; the Financial Crisis 2008, the Election Campaign 2010 and routine political news coverage 2012 in Sweden. The main conclusion from this study is that mediatization of media coverage is substantially influenced by the specific context of the news. In sum, mediatization of political journalism is moderated by different news reporting contexts such as the election campaign.
