Besides describing the current situation, the article employs data from a survey of editors-in-chief to investigate how news professionals anticipate the relationship between journalism and communications evolving in the future. Respondents perceived a blurring of the boundary between local journalism and communications. They observed economic pressures creating incentives for news media to compromise their journalistic ethics and ethical concerns arising from professional communications’ adoption of journalistic practices. Editors-in-chief maintained that the boundaries between journalism and other forms of communication are clear in their media but indistinct in other local news media outlets and in society in general. They predicted an ambiguous, even grim, future of local news media in Finland. However, local news media may have a positive future if they become distinct, attractive and relevant again to citizens.</p> 2022-08-09T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jaana Hujanen, Mikko Grönlund, Juho Ruotsalainen, Katja Lehtisaari, Viljami Vaarala https://tidsskrift.dk/journalistica/article/view/130043 Freedom of expression or censorship of antisemitic hate speech? 2022-01-12T08:10:02+01:00 Birgitte P. Haanshuus b.p.haanshuus@hlsenteret.no <p>Taking the dilemma between freedom of expression and censorship of antisemitic hate speech as a point of departure, this article explores how three prominent and controversial Norwegian far-right alternative media perceive and perform comment moderation and how editorial and audience perspectives on the issue correspond. Based on a critical discourse analysis of interviews with key staff members and a strategic selection of comment sections, the article demonstrates how both moderators and debaters understand the boundaries between legitimate and illegitimate expressions and how transgressive content should be dealt with. The article argues that when it comes to regulating comment sections, these oppositional media actors are not so alternative after all. The study illustrates how comment moderation is crucial for all actors who seek to obtain or protect their legitimacy, regardless of their (counter-) position in the public sphere. While there is widespread agreement on antisemitic hate speech as illegitimate, there is, however, more tolerance for generalising statements about Muslims and immigrants, which underpins these actors’ antagonism towards these groups.</p> 2022-06-23T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Birgitte P.

I denne artikel undersøges begge dele. </span><span style="font-size: 10.000000pt; font-family: 'Utopia';">Vi laver en indholdsanalyse af fire ugers dækning i 2021 i de tre største landsdækkende dagblade i Danmark (Jyllands-Posten, Politiken og Berlingske Tidende) og sammenligner resultaterne med eksisterende forskning. </span><span style="font-size: 10.000000pt; font-family: 'Utopia';">Knap halvdelen af dagbladenes ekspertkilder er privatansatte ikke-forskere.
