Abstract [en]

Euroscepticism is seen as a growing problem throughout the Member states of the European Union and amongst the political elites. If Great Britain’s case last year has shown us anything, it is that this issue has to be taken seriously if the Union is to survive. Many researchers have blamed the British news media for the result of the Brexit vote whilst others, including political sociologist Paul Statham, have argued that the news media is responsible for influencing, and even capable to influence, the public’s opinions to a lesser extent than commonly assumed. This study examines the news coverage about the European Union, in Germany’s two biggest online-newspapers Die Bild Online and Die Welt Online , during the three months leading up to the German elections 2017. With the help of a media content analysis, patterns in political bias against the European Union in these newspapers could not be identified, against the assumption of growing euroscepticism in national press. Based on Statham’s study of European press, this brought up questions about the actual power newspapers possess which are being discussed toward the end of this thesis.
