Battling mainstream media, commentators and organized debaters: experiences from citizens’ online opinion writing in Sweden

2014 (English)In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 35, no 2, p. 77-89Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article presents the results of a qualitative interview study on citizen opinion writers who are active on a citizen media website in Sweden. The study explores the writers’ experiences of participating in the alternative and citizen media landscape online, their purposes, the benefits and finally what impedes their participation. The results paint a picture of a sole grass-roots writer who aims to reach the broad political sphere using a mix of strategies to participate, oppose the mainstream media or use the Web as a writing gym. The restrictive powers they encounter are associated with mainstream media, commentators and organized debaters. This is discussed as causing a narrower public debate, less participation and less counter-hegemonic content.
