Abstract [en]

Purpose and issues: The purpose of this study is to investigate how the COVID-19 pandemic has been framed by the Swedish newspapers. This analysis mainly focuses on the reporting of four (online) Swedish newspapers.

Our chosen main question for this thesis is:How has COVID-19 been framed by Swedish newspapers during the first and second wave?

Method and material: In this particular study we have gathered our empirical data from four Swedish newspapers from the internet. The data is going to be analysed with the help of critical content analysis and Entman’s four concepts. 

Main results: This study will show a successful case of government communication around a pandemic and how when a government communicates clear answers to anxiety provoking questions, it can influence media coverage from a negative to a positive direction.
