  • Qualitative content analysis and discourse network analysis of 808 newspaper articles.

  • Identifying four distinct storylines used to delegitimize or legitimize wind energy.

  • Delegitimizing storylines are more prevalent in the Swiss discourse.

  • In Austria, there is more consistent support for wind energy in the public discourse.
