This study stems from the problematization of the argument that media and thus journalists posses a great power due to their role as framers of news stories. The study therefore analyses the news framing of Annette Vilhelmsen, one of the two candidates in the party leader election campaign of the Danish party Socialistisk Folkeparti (SF). On a selection of 27 articles from seven different Danish newspapers the analysis examines if the framing of Annette Vilhelmsen is biased. The findings show that 19 of the articles were biased, of which 15 were positive towards Vilhelmsen and four were negative. Eight articles were neutral. The positive bias derives from both journalistic commentary and a biased set of wording as well as a one-sided selection of sources.
