Abstract: Objectivity is a pivotal –  yet controversial –  concept in journalism studies. Scholars disagree on what it precisely implies and on how strictly journalists should stick to it. Adopting an argumentative perspective enables reconstructing how journalists concretely deal with the objectivity requirement, which plays the role of endoxical premise in newsroom argumentative decision-making. The selected case studies shed light on what objectivity means and how journalists achieve it in two Swiss public service television newsrooms.
