The results from this first part are then developed into an analysis tool. With this tool the parliament debate is examined and compared with the results from the first analysis. The last part of the study is a qualitative comparison on a number of arguments from both the blog sphere and the parliament debate. This is meant to intensify the study. The result from the study shows strong similarities between what was debated and how it was debated. In addition the study shows a difference of how much and how the opposition parties and the government parties are using the argument from the blog sphere. (Less)
