ABSTRACT. Örnebring and Jönsson hold that tabloid journalism positions itself, in different ways, as an alternative to the issues, forms and audiences of the journalistic mainstream. Djupsund and Carlson maintain that media should arouse interest, present topical and upcoming issues, and inform about the standpoints of different groups of actors. Mayes writes that emotional indulgence and sentimentalism are replacing informative, facts-based news reporting. McDonald holds that watching television is deeply implicated in the literal collapse of positive civic participation in almost all of its forms.
