Political news is hard to understand | ScienceNordic

In collaboration with Toril Aalberg, professor in media sociology at NTNU, she looked at the media's use of experts as sources in their political news coverage.
Half of Norwegian voters are usually undecided about which party to vote for until the last weeks before an election. This makes coverage of politics all the more important during these periods. Grøttum and Aalberg searched the four media for difficult concepts and metaphors that were not explained in news items. According to Aalberg a rather large share of the political news stories in the papers and on TV called for a considerable amount of previous knowledge. You need to know who the politicians are, their positions in the political landscape, and you have to recognise political terminology and political metaphors," she says. "Without that prior knowledge it's hard to comprehend what the news is about." "This is no problem for people who are interested in politics," says Aalberg. She thinks a lot of political journalism is alienating for the many who aren't particularly interested. It can even make this large share of the voters less interested in politics. Aalberg is also aware of the dilemma facing journalists and the media. "The days are over when the public 'had to' see the news if they wanted to watch TV," says Aalberg. Professor Toril Aalberg has previously conducted research pointing in the direction of this being an unwise move. Grøttum and Aalberg have also collaborated in an investigation of the use of political analysts or commentators. "These analysts obviously utilise a vocabulary that makes many political stories harder to undertsand," says Aalberg. "We found a striking difference between these two groups," says Aalberg.

Sifting through the evidence, she finds that public service media systems, on balance, offer more depth and hard news coverage and, consequently, their citizens [...] by Toril Aalberg
