An informed electorate is crucial to an effective democracy. It is the duty of the Fourth Estate to inform this electorate with the utmost objectivity. Pure objectivity, however, is impossible. Journalists are human and words incontrovertibly reflect a perspective. In order to be as informed as possibly, the limits of objectivity — or contexts influencing journalists — must be well understood. This thesis explores four different contexts that influence journalists and, thus, the content they produce.
