Abstract
This study examines the discourse strategies used in the news headings in representing the public actors related to the case of Donald Trump’s declaration to Jerusalem as Israel Capital. The study employs Critical Discourse Analyze (CDA) to analyze the representation of political social actors in the case. In addition, it also describes the linguistic realization of the strategies, and the function of strategies used in representing the actors. Three international online newspapers are chosen systematically as representative media, which released the news related to the case; the newspapers are: CNN News, The Guardian, and Al Jazeera. The study uses the theory of representation of civil actors put forward by Theo's van Leeuwen (2008). The theory involves a socio-semantic network of public actors. In the network, it is presented two main divisions, exclusion (process of omitting actors) and inclusion (process of presenting the social actor(s) in a representation). The results show that there are some distinct techniques and discourse strategies in presenting the representation of political social actors related to the case. Thus, it can be concluded that the different representation used by each media is because of its own ideology, and its believe in framing the case.
