Three nuclear events : From event to publicity (English)
Abstract [sv]

I studien har jag ställt frågorna; vad är masskommunikation och hur kan den beskrivas? Vilken väg transporteras en händelse i massmedias infrastruktur? Ambitionen är att undersöka hur masskommunikationen fungerar, därför har tre specifika händelser valts ut för att studeras. Teoretiskt utgår studien ifrån ett mediefilosofiskt synsätt i en postmodern tradition med medieteori av McLuhan, Baudrillard och Bourdieu. Undersökningen har genomförts med kvalitativ fallstudie. Tre händelser har identifierats och kategoriserats i empirisk, definitiv och producerad händelse. 1) Konferensen 1955 förmedlades av pressjournalister till tidningens läsare. 2) Katastrofen 1986 upptäcktes vid avläsning av mätutrustning, där ett radioaktivt utsläpp uppmätts. Experter rapporterade till journalister. 3) Rapporten 2004 förmedlades i ett uttalande i TV av en politisk företrädare och via ett pressmeddelande till redaktionerna. Vid dessa tre händelser så kunde publicering ske i media till användarna av de olika medieartefakterna. In this study these questions are asked; what is mass communication and how can it be described? ow is an event transported through the infrastructure of the mass media? The ambition is to examine some aspects of mass communication. Theoretically the study is oriented towards a postmodern tradition with theories from McLuhan, Baudrillard and Bourdieu. This is connected to the viewpoint of Large Technical System (LTS) and the news office and the mass media, continuing to the news orientation toward events. The method used is qualitative case study. Three different types of events have been classified in the categories empiric, final and produced. 1) The conference 1955 was covered by journalists and delivered to readers of the newspaper. 2) The catastrophe 1986 was revealed by a measuring device that picked up radioactive pollution and experts were reporting to journalists. 3) The report 2004 was communicated in a TV program by a politician and through a press release to news offices. Thus three events were publicized in mass media and thereby made accessible to the users of media artefacts.
