The ratification of the omnibus law on job creation sparked debate among various groups, resulting in protests across Indonesia. The purpose of this research is to explain how TV One and Metro TV framed news about protests against the omnibus law. The framing model used in this research is Robert N. Entman’s model, which focuses on the selection of issues and the emphasis on specific aspects of a news story. This research employed a qualitative method, using three TV One news and three Metro TV news segments from October 7 to October 28, 2020, as research samples, which were analyzed by examining the text, duration, and scene. This research utilized four framing elements as an analytical tool: defining problems, diagnosing the cause, making a moral judgment, and treatment recommendation. The findings of this research show, first, there was a negative association in reporting, and both media had similarities in reporting by only displaying riots without mentioning the protest participants’ objectives and arguments. Second, there was a dominance of source persons presented by TV One and Metro TV, and both media tended to use the government apparatus’s perspective. This was evident in the treatment recommendations of the six samples of TV One and Metro TV news coverage, which inclined to favor the government, resulting in an imbalance of information reaching the public.
