In fact he says that if anything, the tendency looks to be the antithesis. In this quantitative content analysis I study two Swedish newspapers coverage in build up to two elections. The elections which I have chosen to investigate are the referendum pertaining to EU-membership 1994 and that regarding EMU-membership in 2003. The findings of this examination suggest that, at least for the two elections investigated, newspapers have the tendency to increase their coverage in the sphere of issue frames. (Less)
