New political parties are increasing as phenomena in Swedish politics. Some of these parties have gained much attention in the media, and recent examples are Junilistan, Feministiskt initiativ and Sjukvårdspartiet. Media plays an important role for political parties as it is a way for the parties to communicate with the citizens. Therefore this essay examines how these three new parties have been pictured in media lately, and with what arguments they are discussed. This is done by argument analysis of editorials in five Swedish newspapers. The result shows that the reactions to all three parties seem to follow a rhetorical pattern. It also shows that the new parties are treated with scepticism and that the newspapers are more interested in the phenomena than the ideas these parties carry. The next part of the thesis test if these arguments fit into Albert O. Hirschman's rhetoric of reactions typology. The answer is that most of the arguments fit in. The lack of certainty results from the poorly supported way of discussing in the newspapers. (Less)
