Participation in the state of the ordinary. Being ”yourself”
(MEDIETEKN O INTERAKTIONSDESIGN)
1997 (English)In: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 4, no 3, 69-79 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The relationship between the media and politics is often negatively described as being in a state of confusion and turmoil in which new standards of public media performance are eroded by viewer ratings, commercialism and trans-nationalism. In this article, I will give examples from the Swedish setting to show how the relationship between media and politics is generally conceived, by indicating how media-workers and politicians become idealised in stereotypical roles of bad vs. good. ''The State of the Ordinary'' is what we refer to as a tendency toward everyday practices of ''ordinariness'' in language use and in the general rule of authenticity in the media, making room for a new kind of politician who claims to be not a ''politician'' but simply ''him or herself'' as a politician. Being ''yourself'' as a representative is a perennial feature of the attempt to legitimise dominant roles at the top of the hierarchy of power distribution.
