This book analyzed how Indonesia was represented in the news of one Australian newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald, as it reported its neighboring country from 2004 to 2009. “Indonesia” here refers to three big categories of news actors, that is, the presidents, the government officials, and the ordinary people of Indonesia. This book also discusses the complicated and complex concept of representation and news representation, not only the local but also foreign news representations. Within the scope of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), this book observed news representations through the social, cognitive and cultural perspectives. Such viewpoints were selected because news circulates in the social domain, is produced and comprehended cognitively, and along time becomes the artifacts of culture. Based on the social actor and social action networks (van Leeuwen, 2008), the appraisal system (Martin and White, 2005) and dimensions of evaluation (Bednarek, 2009), this book proposed a three- set analytical framework to properly analyze news representations: news actor, news action and author evaluation.
In brief, it can be concluded that different presidents were represented differently, the government officials were mostly represented negatively due to many corruption cases, and the ordinary Indonesians were represented sympathetically because they lived in very poor conditions. As such representations were taken from the news two decades ago, how much has Indonesia improved recently?
