ABSTRACT

Title: Sensational Tabloids? – An Investigation of Journalistic Ethics

Number of pages: 33

Author: Marlene Linder

Tutor: Amelie Hössjer

Course: Media and Communication Studies D

Period: Spring 2008

University: Division of Media and Communication, Department of Information Science, Uppsala University.

Purpose/Aim: To investigate the tabloidisation of the evening papers’ entertainment sections and to see how they perform in terms of principles of ethics and journalistic codes of ethics.

Material/Method: Ethical analysis through the use of The Potter Box model.

Main results: Even though the evening papers Aftonbladet and Expressen include serious pieces of journalistic writing, sensational journalism has pervaded the evening press. The focus is on entertaining the audience and putting an eyebrow-raising twist even on important news events.

Keywords: Tabloidisation, codes of ethics, journalism, Aftonbladet, Expressen, crown princess Victoria, Potter Box Model, and Dumbing Down Journalism.
