Public Responsible or Click Generating? A Hermeneutic-Phenomenological Sociological Approach to Experienced Tensions Among Local Journalists.
This dissertation deals with the phenomenon of experienced tensions in contemporary Norwegian local journalism. Norway is often refered to as the “world champion of local papers”, with the highest relative amount of readers in the world. The local offices of the broadcasting’s ratings are high as well. Local journalism is an important provider of local information, identity, debate, freedom of speech and culture. Hence, it is a key stone in local democracy.
