Abstract
The role of media in reporting something could decide how people may act regarding the news. The Presidential election of Indonesia may be considered as one national event that draws huge attention of the people of Indonesia or even other countries. The election has been done on April 17th, 2019 and the president and vice president candidates (Number 01); Mr. Joko Widodo and Mr. Ma’ruf Amin have been considered as the winner of the election based on the result of the quick count. On the other hand, the president and vice president candidates (Number 02); Mr. Prabowo Subianto and Mr. Sandiaga Salahudin Uno think that they are the winner according to the data of internal quick count. The rejection of the candidates’ number 02 issued a term named “People Power.” That term may mean anything. Using Critical Discourse Analysis proposed by Fairclough (1989, 1995, 1997), the researcher wants to find the linguistic expressions used in the editorial to find the alignment of the newspaper. This research used a descriptive-qualitative method to explain and describe the phenomena which exist in the data related to the alignment of the newspapers through Critical Discourse Analysis. The researcher collected the data by observing Media Indonesia online newspaper dated May 13th, 2019 entitled “Membatasi Gerak Bandit Politik”. The researcher uses referential, inferential, and distributional methods in the making of the interpretation of the findings. The researcher found that there are 5 (five) strategies used in the editorial. Those are Domination of Participant and Process, Hidden Actor, Active-Passive Clause, Positive – Negative Clause, and Metaphors.
