FRAMING CONFLICT NEWS IN POSO INDONESIA: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE MANADO POST, MAL, AND KOMPAS NEWSPAPERS
This thesis examines how two local newspapers (the Manado Post, based in a peaceful city, and MAL in a conflicted city) framed conflict news in Poso, Indonesia, from 1998 to 2003. In addition, the study examines the contribution of the national daily newspaper, Kompas, to conflict resolution in Poso. A content analysis of 403 articles from the three newspapers concluded that the local newspaper in a conflict city (MAL) tended to be more provocative than the newspaper in a peaceful city (the Manado Post) and the national newspaper (Kompas). Two indicators were the language and the images the newspapers used in reporting conflict news. Peace journalism training has influenced the journalists in all three newspapers in framing conflict news.
