Abstract [en]

A few years ago hopes were made that multi-channel publishing would solve the crisis of the news industry. However the hopes have not been fulfilled. Instead we see signs of transformations and reductions of online journalism. This paper presents a case study of the newswork in the online newsroom, the news website of Dagens Nyheter, Sweden’s largest morning newspaper. The study concerns the changing conditions, news judgments, ideals and norms of journalism. It more specifically scrutinizes the relationships between gender, news production, news values, and professional routines. The journalists at express a broad consciousness of gender equality, however women’s voices, experiences and expertise continue to be significantly underrepresented in the news content. It is argued that the news judgment is driven by traffic metrics, which is potentially threatening to the autonomy and gender parity in online newsrooms.
