Abstract [en]

This paper deals with media criticism and mistrust among people active in immigration critical alternative media in Sweden. Characteristic of many far-right movements is a widespread skepticism and suspiciousness towards mainstream media. The message is that mainstream media conceal or distort information that does not fit the “politically correct” agenda. In Sweden anti-immigration movements exhibit the same attitude. Media channels (especially online participatory media) used by these movements (“alternative media”) need to be analysed in the light of its position as a perceived corrective of traditional media. In the project, the aim is to understand the rationality behind radical right media criticism by interviewing activists about their perception of mainstream media and their view of participation in democratic society. The findings will shed light on how people active in far-right counter-public spheres perceive and position themselves in relation to mainstream media.
