#Blistering #Barnacles! : A case study of Dagens Nyheters role in #Tintingate (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to look at how a newsroom discusses before a publication that is suspected to get a big response on social media sites and also how the journalists reacts towards that response. To reach that purpose I conducted a case study of a news item which had gotten a lot of response on social media. A librarian in Sweden wanted to remove the Tintin comics from a youth library because of racist content. Dagens Nyheter was the first news media to print this news item and I therefore chose to interview three people involved from that paper. A media strategist, who was critical to Dagens Nyheters reporting, was also interviewed to get an outsiders perspective. Qualitative interviews were chosen as they were believed to be the best way to reach the purpose of the essay. The theories used to answer the purpose of the essay were the following: news values, news reporting, objectivity and social media. In the essay I came to the conclusion that neither of the parties had precisely the right point of view and that the answer to the question of how a news room should handle social media seemed to be somewhere in the middle of the two.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att se på hur en nyhetsredaktion resonerar inför publiceringen av en nyhet som kan misstänkas få stort gensvar och hur journalisterna reagerar på det gensvaret. För att uppnå detta genomfördes en fallstudie på en nyhetshändelse som hade fått stort gensvar på sociala medier. En bibliotekarie i Stockholm ville plocka bort Tintin-seriealbumen från ett ungdomsbibliotek på grund av rasistiskt innehåll. Dagens Nyheter var det första nyhetsmedia som skrev om denna händelse och därför valde jag att intervjua tre personer från den tidningen. Kvalitativa intervjuer valdes som det bästa sättet att uppnå syftet. Teorierna som användes för att besvara syftet av uppsatsen var följande: nyhetsvärdering, nyhetsrapportering, objektivitet och sociala medier. I uppsatsen kom jag fram till att ingen av parterna hade rätt sätt att se på saken och att svaret på frågan om hur en nyhetsredaktion borde ställa sig till sociala medier tycktes finnas någonstans i mitten av de två.
