Politische Diskurse im Internet und in Zeitungen: Das by Dieter Rucht, Mundo Yang, Ann Zimmermann

By Dieter Rucht, Mundo Yang, Ann Zimmermann

Das net gilt vielen als ein software, das im Vergleich zu herkömmlichen Massenmedien eine öffentliche Debatte mit einem weitaus breiteren Spektrum an Akteuren und argumentativen Gesichtspunkten zu aktuellen politischen Fragen ermöglichen würde. Damit könne das web zu einer Demokratisierung und Rationalisierung öffentlicher Diskurse beitragen. Diese Annahme wird anhand des Streits um Nutzen und Gefahren von Genfood mit quantitativen empirischen Mitteln im deutschsprachigen Raum untersucht. Neben einer konventionellen Inhaltsanalyse wird auch eine methodisch cutting edge examine von links und Webseiten durchgeführt. Im Ergebnis zeigen sich nur relativ kleine Unterschiede zwischen web und Qualitätszeitungen, sofern das net nicht von der Angebotsseite erschlossen wird, sondern aus der Perspektive derjenigen Nutzer, die Google als Suchmaschine heranziehen. Zudem scheint das net zu einer Fragmentierung politischer Öffentlichkeit beizutragen.
