  1. 1. When fake news make the news. A study of journalistic boundaries.

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för journalistik, medier och kommunikation

    Author : Anton Fridolfsson; [2021-07-27]
    Keywords : Fake news; post-truth; professional boundaries; boundary work; journalistic paradigm; propaganda; misleading information;

    Abstract : This thesis takes a spearheaded look at a modern, much-talked about concept of misleadinginformation known as ”fake news”, and how traditional journalists have handled its emergence with regards to their professional boundaries. Built on the premise that who and what is to be considered journalism is a constant battle continuously fought between professional journalists and actors trying to lay claim to their professional territory, through the use of qualitative ethnographic content analysis of 88 journalistic texts, the study’s aim is to take initiative in academic concept development of how to define fake news, and explore in what ways traditional journalists have defended their professional boundaries, in light of the threat provided by the increasing prevalence of misleading content in the information ecosystem, as well as by an anti-establishment, critical of-traditonal-media post-truth culture.
