The development of information technology through the internet network has led online media to be fast, efficient, and practical in informing the news to the public. There are online Islamic media that exist to spread facts and political opinions. The purpose of this study is to explain and describe the trends of online political news of Islamic media of eramuslim.com, islampos.com, and voice-islam.com. The analysis of this research uses Van Dijk model discourse which describes the tendency towards political news which is analyzed through six elements namely thematic, schematic, semantic, syntactic, stylistic, and rhetorical structures in the political news of online Islamic media. The results of this study shows the percentage of the online Islamic media has a tendency towards the theme of national political news of 51.91% and 48.09% of non-political news. In addition, the tendency towards national political news at eramuslim.com is 66.02%, 38.02% at islampos.com, and 57.89% at voice-islam.com. News schemes for summary are displayed without news leads, and news stories are more likely to be based on opinions rather than facts. The semantic structure is displayed through background, details, and intent of news that has a tendency to put political news as the opposition by displaying the opinion of certain political actors, whereas the syntactic structure is displayed through the form of active sentences continuously questioning the government policy of political actors without considering the 5W + 1 H aspects in the news. Moreover, the stylistic structure of the word choice tends to use active sentences and be in an oppositional stance to the government in accordance with the ideology of the news media. By displaying images as a form of political affirmation emphasis, the rhetorical structure of the political news of online Islamic media is delivered with bold headlines with large size letters.
