This paper examines how the public service broadcaster Danish Radio & Television covers the controversial danish politician Rasmus Paludan. We will commence with an introduction to the dilemmas surrounding Rasmus Paludan who recently became eligible for election with his political party Hard Line. Subsequently these dilemmas are narrowed down to a main question to be answered and also three questions related to it. The theoretical basis of our analysis is composed of theory consisting of 1) objectivity in journalistic procedures, 2) framing analysis and 3) journalistic spheres. The framing analysis will consist of both quantitative and qualitative approaches to the media station’s coverage of Paludan. Results of the analysis show that the framing of Paludan changes over time, i.e. from before his electoral eligibility to after. It shows that there is a decrease in the number of delegitimizing attributes Danish Radio & Television use to explicitly frame Paludan. But it also shows that after his electoral eligibility the framing becomes more implicit. When applying the theory of journalistic spheres we argue whether or not the journalistic approach to Paludan is reflected in the coverage of him and therefore reflected in the spheres of which he is assessed to belong into.
