Alternative Media – Propaganda or not? : A critical dicource analysis of Samhällsnytt and Fria Tider and their news coverage of the Sweden Democrats. (English)
Abstract [en]

Alternative Media is a new phenomenon when it comes to bringing us the news. These Alternative News sites has often being accused for being bias and favour right-wing parties. The purpose of this thesis has been to see how the Alternative News sites Samhällsnytt and Fria tider have been reporting news about the Swedish right wing party, Sverigedemokraterna (SD) before the Swedish election 2018. And if their articles have similarities to propaganda. With help of a critical discource analysis, it has been possible to see traces of propaganda in the material. The majority of the articles reproduce a discourse where SD is seen as the alternative to a Swedish society that does not work as it should. SD are also presented as a victim in the society when they are involved in news that otherwise could give them a negative image.
