Newspapers present news events from the point of view of the editors/writers. In turn, they also control people’s view toward the society. The readers’ perception of the world is, therefore, under the control of the writers. In Taiwan, there are two major political parties, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the Kuomintang (KMT). The DPP claims that Taiwan is an independent country, while the KMT claims that under the consensus established in 1992, Taiwan and Mainland China should gradually be unified into one country. This study discusses how the media present the two opposed political ideologies in their articles.
Adopting critical discourse analysis (CDA) as the analytic framework, this study analyzed selected headlines in two ideologically opposed newspapers in Taiwan, i.e. the pro-independence Liberty Times (LT) and the pro-unification United Daily News (UDN). The headlines describing the news event about the visit of Chen Yunlin, the chairmen of Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait in PRC, in 2008 in Taiwan were analyzed. Fifty headlines of the news event from November 4th, 2008 to November 8th, 2008 were selected. The linguistic features in the articles were analyzed, including topics of the headlines, quotations, and lexical choices. This study finds out how the two newspapers present the same issue from different political viewpoints. The results show that the UDN, which supports the KMT cross-strait policy, presents the positive descriptions of Chen and the benefits of the agreements; while the LT, which opposes the KMT cross-strait policy, presents the negative descriptions of Chen and the possible threats of the agreements. The results show that language use in the news headlines is not neutral, but full of ideology.
