    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the announced refusal to answer asa form of dispreferred and challenging response in broadcastpolitical interviews. The aim is to study how the rightnessand wrongness of conduct is dealt with in situations of announcedrefusal. More specifically, the paper focuses on: (1) announcedrefusal as a particular type of conduct; (2) the orientationto norms and accountability in situations of announced refusal;(3) how the legitimacy of politics and journalism is negotiatedin broadcast interviews. The data consist of 23 cases from Swedishelection campaigns, and the analysis is based on ConversationAnalysis, focusing on how the participants treat themselvesand others as normatively accountable. The study indicates thatthe politicians understand themselves as accountable and avoidhostile actions in the interviews. Their refusals are designedmainly to be understood as appropriate distancing actions withoutexplicitly complaining about the interviewers’ conduct.

    Conversation analysis in journalism studies2007In: Journalism Studies, ISSN 1461-670X, E-ISSN 1469-9699, Vol. 8, no 6, p. 964-973Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article considers the role of conversational analysis in the study of journalism. The author argues that conversation is inherent to the very being of journalism, whether it be conversational exchange in broadcast journalism or the conversation engaged in by print journalists in their news gathering activities. The article offers a brief history of the field of conversational analysis. Of particular interest in conversational analysis for journalistic study is the role of institutional interaction. The author discusses the role of communication and conversation in news legitimacy.

    Abstract [en]

    Staged talk: On relations between politics and journalism. This article focuses on political talkin the media. Taking the point of departure in discourse and conversation analysis the aim is to study relations and methods on a micro level in two forms of staged talk; the interaction in live interviews and the practices of quoting in edited news reports. The study of live interviews is based on programs broadcasted during the Swedish election campaigns 2002 and 2006. The study shows how relations of power are negotiated in interaction. Methods used by the politicians to deal with delicate situations created by the questions asked are analysed. The analysis of edited news reports shows how techniques of quoting have been part of a process moving the stage of the political debate more and more into the media. Quoting is a flexible resource frequently used by journalists in the dramatization of news stories and the recontextualization of others voices.

    Power and affiliation in presidential press conferences: A study on interruptions, jokes and laughter2009In: Journal of Language and Politics, ISSN 1569-2159, E-ISSN 1569-9862, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 386-415Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Presidential press conference is an enduring form for public interrogations. Interaction in this context regulates and symbolizes relations of power, autonomy and affiliation between the President and the journalists. A general argument is that we have to study sequences of interaction in order to understand the roles and relations established in press conferences. The article investigates interruptions, and jokes and laughter. The study is based on Conversation Analysis and the data encompasses 19 press conferences held by George W Bush from 2005-2007. The analysis shows how the President uses interruptions in order to control the allocation of turns, disagree and reject criticism, demonstrate certainty and conviction, and makes joke with the journalists. Sequences of jokes and laughter strengthen the interactive power of the President, create affiliations, and questioning the expected neutrality of journalism.

    Biased interrogations?: a multi-methodological approach on bias in election campaign interviews2013In: Journalism Studies, ISSN 1461-670X, E-ISSN 1469-9699, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 423-439Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study, based on Swedish data from three elections (2002, 2006 and 2010) and on a revised version of Clayman's and Heritage's conceptualization of aggressive questioning, examines bias in election campaign interviews with leading political figures. In the first part of the study, the prevalence of partisan bias is explored, and this analysis confirms that such bias does not exist. Informed by Conversation Analysis, a limited number of interviews from the 2006 election are investigated in the second part. This analysis also involves questions scripted by journalists, and it compares both quantitatively and qualitatively the differences between the manuscripts and live interaction. The results question the assumption that bias is solely related to journalistic values and actions. The level of aggressiveness in the interviews is also dependent on how the politicians manage the interview questions.

    Journalism and local politics: A study of scrutiny and accountability in Swedish journalism2006In: Journalism Studies, ISSN 1461-670X, E-ISSN 1469-9699, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 292-311Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Political accountability is defined as an important aspect of scrutiny. By analysing newspapers at three different points in time (1961, 1981 and 2001), this study suggests that the kind of scrutiny often mentioned in the literature, characterised by thorough investigations and disclosures of political wrongdoings, barely exists in the local press. By identifying other forms of scrutiny more closely related to ordinary news reporting, the study shows that one-third of the 1500 articles analysed display some degree of scrutiny. The local press plays an important role in communicating information and critique concerning the ways in which local authority service provision works and how political responsibilities are fulfilled. This study indicates that this role has been strengthened during the second half of the 20th century.

    Beyond the broadcast interview: specialized forms of interviewing in the making of television news2011In: Journalism Studies, ISSN 1461-670X, E-ISSN 1469-9699, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 172-187Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a mixed-method approach, this article aims at exploring the specialized forms of interviewing that are used as resources in television broadcast news production. Interviews are analyzed as functionally specialized forms of interaction (cf. Heritage, 1985) with various functions in different phases of the news production. We assume that interviews are organized and carried out as communicative activities oriented towards specific tasks, identities and contexts of interaction. In contrast to established definitions of the archetypical on air news interview, we argue that broadcast interviewing is only partially produced for an “overhearing audience” (ibid.). Taking into account the entire process of producing and presenting news, journalism harbours a multitude of interviewing practices and activities which remain invisible if only the taped and transcribed broadcast talk is analyzed. Our study clearly indicates that news interviews contain more diversified and hybrid activities of communication than has been described in previous research.

    The joint construction of a journalistic expert identity in studio interactions between journalists on TV news2011In: Text & Talk, ISSN 1860-7330, E-ISSN 1860-7349, Vol. 31, no 6, p. 661-681Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study is to examine how journalistic expert identities are constructed and displayed in the context of intraprofessional journalist-to-journalist interviews on live television news. Previous research has, in detail, explored how journalists orient to the identity of a critical and impartial interrogator, especially in political news interviews. By focusing on journalistic expert identities, this article contributes to a wider perspective on the multiple and changing identities performed in contemporary journalism. The overall argument is that the expert identity is enabled and promoted in collaborative activities on different levels of discourse such as: (i) the media format, (ii) the question–answer based organization of the interaction, (iii) the orientation to liveness, and (iv) how knowledgeability and epistemic stance are constructed and displayed in the actual design of questions and answers. The data consist of interviews from the prime-time news program Aktuellt, broadcast on Swedish public service television in 2008 and 2009.

    Paketerad politik: elva essäer om journalistik och medier2007Collection (editor) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Paketerad politik - 11 essäer om journalistik och medier får läsaren/medborgaren att inse hur ömsesidiga relationerna är mellan medier och politik - idag, men också historiskt. Politiken och journalistiken är beroende av varandra. De är åtskilda, men förenade - politikerna använder medierna och vice versa. Mediernas förändringar vad gäller bl.a. teknik innebär också nya villkor för relationen politik-medier. Behovet av en "mediekritisk kompetens" blir allt större. Det mediegenomsyrade samhället kräver att vi alla kan tänka och reflektera kritiskt över de villkor medierna erbjuder för det offentliga samtalet. Till detta vill denna bok bidraga.

    Family talk, peer talk, and young people’s civic orientation2013In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 294-308Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on interpersonal communication in the family and among peers in order to empirically examine the general idea that everyday civic talk might develop young people’s civic orientation. Two questions are addressed: (1) What is the significance of civic talk in relation to key dimensions of young people’s civic orientation? (2) What does civic talk in peer settings specifically contribute to young people’s civic orientation? The study is based on survey data from high school students and their parents (N = 1148). The findings offer clear support to the idea that civic talk in everyday contexts matters for young people’s development of political knowledge, democratic values and different forms of civic practices. Civic talk in peer settings contributes uniquely to all dimensions of youths’ civic orientation. Implications of the findings for political socialization research and theories of the democratic mechanisms of civic talk are discussed.

    This study examines the effects of informational, interactional and creative forms of Internet use on behavioral and cognitive indicators of youth democratic engagement. Data from an extensive two-wave panel survey of Swedish adolescents (N = 1,520) were examined. Results show that the effects of informational and interactional Internet use on political participation are indirect, with online political interactions acting as an intervening variable. In addition, creative production was found to be a direct positive predictor of online and offline political participation, but negatively related to political knowledge. The effects were statistically significant even when accounting for self-selection and previous levels of democratic engagement. Taken together, these findings contribute novel theoretical insights into the mechanisms by which Internet use may encourage or hinder youths’ democratic engagement.

    Interpreting the news: Swedish correspondents as expert sources 1982-20122013In: Journalism Practice, ISSN 1751-2786, E-ISSN 1751-2794Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines a news genre that is designed for the enactment of interpretive journalism: the live studio correspondent commentary on Swedish news. We trace how the role of expert commentator/interpreter of events has evolved during a 30-year period with a focus on the relation between interaction and surrounding context. How is the expert interpreter role multimodally achieved, and how do technologies enable or constrain the enactment of an expert identity in these dialogues? As we discuss our results, also basing our argument on other studies of the same interactional phenomena, we will propose that the existence of this particular news format can be related to an ongoing power struggle between journalists and politicians. We see these interactions as providing journalism with a perhaps yet underestimated powerful resource in the framing of news, and argue that they should not be written off as merely supplying lightweight, gossipy comments about politics in a glossy studio environment.

    "Interview bites" in television news production and presentation2010In: Journalism Practice, ISSN 1751-2786, E-ISSN 1751-2794, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 476-491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on how interviewees’ utterances are used as resources in      news production processes. We examine how these communicative units, here labelled ‘interview bites’, are integrated in every major aspect of the news      production process as well as in the presentation of news reports. Basically, we      argue that an interview bite operates in three distinct ways, as (a) a format, (b) a mental representation, and (c) an artefact. Although we claim that it has these different functions, the three dimensions interact and collectively work as powerful motivations for the choices made by reporters throughout the news production process. The data is gathered from field observations of Swedish reporters’ work at a major news desk and from in-depth reporter interviews. Theoretically, the study re-visits Clayman’s (1995) considerations for enhancing quotability: narrative relevance, conspicuousness and extractability. While maintaining these three basic cornerstones of what makes certain statements quote-worthy, a re-definition of the rationale behind each consideration is needed in order to make them relevant for our understanding of everyday news production practices.
