This study examines the discourses of newspapers, and how the discourse can affect the implementation of a legislative proposal, by the government power. We have approached this, by the use of the social theory of discourse by Norman Fairclough, to analyse selected newspapers. The main focus of the rapport is the toll ring-bill. The period of time we have selected to analyse is the month up to the cancelation of the bill. We have chosen to split this period of time in to three parts. We have done this to examine the development of the discourses used by the newspapers. We have selected one article from each newspaper in each period. The analysis shows that the discourses of the newspapers, have an indirect effect on the government, by affecting the voters. The newspapers does this by either reproduce or transform the already existing discourse. Thus we have concluded the discourse of the newspapers have developed in negative fashion, which have been a factor in the cancelation of the toll ring-bill.
