Abstract

This research is aimed at determining the social cognition of news texts in newspapers. This research employed a descriptive qualitative approach with the analysis of Teun van Dijk's critical discourse, precisely the dimension of social cognition. The research data were collected through the method of simak (observe) and the technique of catat (noting). The results showed that in terms of social cognition, the role of editors was crucial in a newspaper report. Each newspaper has its plot and way of producing corruption news, depending on the ideology and the motto of the newspaper. News construction or commonly known as framing a news text, is a privilege that is owned by each mass media. As a result, the construction of news from Suara Merdeka, Republika, Kompas, and Jawa Pos media has some differences, although it does not rule out some similarities.
