Abstract

The potential of discourse analysis in interpreting written languages has
attracted linguists’ interest to further extend the discussion. This study aims to
analyze the headline news of Kompas.com about a massive Jakarta flood occurring
in 2019 through the perspective of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA). The study
employed qualitative research descriptive using a Van Dijk’s framework consisting
of three dimensions: macrostructure, superstructure, and microstructure. The data
were collected from Kompas.com online news entitled Banjir Jakarta: Normalisasi
yang Terlambat dan hasil naturalisasi yang Belum Terlihat (Jakarta Flood: Delayed
Normalization and Unseen Naturalization Results) (Kompas.Com, 2020). The
study found that Kompas.com used direct diction to present the text and took a
stand in the opposition to the Jakarta Governor policy. It was implicitly derived
from the sentences and paragraphs analyzed from CDA perspectives. The study
concluded that the news provides information to readers and spread thought or
understanding of the ideology adopted by journalists themselves.
