Abstract [en]

The following thesis is a comparative small-N study on how political ideologies influence news released by Aftonbladet and Expressen. More specifically, it examines cases where the Muslim veil is being written about and portrayed. By using social constructivism and framing as main theories, they lay the foundation for the understanding of the construction of reality, as well as to understanding how news can be "framed". Based on framing techniques, media outlets contribute to the diverse conceptual build up the readers may have when reading news. Agenda setting and two political ideologies: liberalism and social democracy are aimed to give the grounds for the analytical framework, in order to find the values portrayed in each newspaper release.

After applying the theories it was found that political ideologies play an important role in how and what is represented, as well as serving as a filter to what kind of topics are being released.
