Sammanfattning

Internet has fragmented the media landscape. People can now easily self-select into news outlets that aligns with their political preferences, which may create a polarized citizenry. However, public service broadcasting in many European countries still strive to have a universal appeal, which can mitigate political cleavages. This study examines which political preferences are more likely to facilitate selective exposure to public service broadcasting news, as well how public service broadcasting news affect political polarization, using an annual survey spanning 30 years in Sweden (n=103,589). Using mixed-effects modelling, results suggests that fewer attend to public service news over time, but differences by political leaning is minor, whereas identity with right-wing populist party decrease the use of public service news. Moderate amounts of political interest are enough for individuals to sustain use of public service news over time. Political polarization is also minor between those who use public service news more often versus seldom. In general, neither political cleavages nor political polarization seems to have increased over time due to selective exposure or public service news use.
