Subjectivity as language use in newspapers and news weblogs

Subjectivity as language use in newspapers and news weblogs

The most important difference between newspaper and news weblog texts is their subjectivity representation. By means of a linguistic content analysis differences were established between newspapers and news weblogs. In a detailed analysis of specific grammatical and stylistic characteristics at sentence level, subjectivity differences in writing were revealed. The most important outcome was that news events in news weblogs were written from the authors’ perspectives. In contrast, newspaper texts present several voices through which the news reveals itself. The results show that subjectivity in journalism is primarily a matter of style.
