Abstract
This quantitative study was conducted with the aim to inquire into Swedish 9th
graders’ attitudes towards traditional and digital news media and news outlets’
trustworthiness. With basis in strategic communication theories concerning gatekeeping,
the Bandwagon effect and filter bubbles, three research questions and four
hypotheses were designed. A statistical analytics were compiled from 189 online
survey replies from students in and around Helsingborg, Sweden. The results show
that Swedish 9th graders do in fact have an overall awareness of the presence of
Fake News in their daily news consumption, but the need to apply a conscious
source-critical review to what information they receive is limited. Rather, the students

Abstract (Swedish)
Denna kvantitativa studie har i syfte att undersöka svenska högstadieelevers inställning
till traditionella och digitala nyhetsmedier samt nyhetsföretag trovärdighet.
Med utgångspunkt i strategiska kommunikationsteorier såsom gatekeeping, the
Bandwagon effect och filterbubblor, utformades tre frågeställningar och fyra hypoteser.
Med hjälp av statistikprogrammet SPSS analyserades 189 fullständiga enkätsvar
från studenter i Helsingborg med omnejd. Resultaten visade att svenska högstadieelever
hade en övergripande medvetenhet om förekomsten av Fake News i
sin dagliga nyhetskonsumtion. Behovet av att tillämpa en medvetet källkritisk
granskning till den information de exponeras för var däremot begränsad. Eleverna

granskning till den information de exponeras för var däremot begränsad. Eleverna
valde då hellre att konsumera nyhetskällor med en redan ansedd trovärdighetsbild,
vars sanningshalt de ansåg var onödig att dubbelkolla. Med sina egna ord pekade
eleverna på öppenhet, oberoende rapportering och källangivelse som kritiska egenskaper
i tillförlitliga nyhetsmedier. (Less)
