    Abstract

    This paper reports the representation of the local Indonesians in The Sydney Morning Herald (SMH), one of the mainstream newspapers in Australia. Part of a bigger study, this paper focuses on three available sof-news articles about Indonesia published in 2009. The purpose is to see how a newspaper perceives and represents the people of another country for the consumption of its fellow readers. The data were analyzed through news actor, news action and author evaluation frameworks (Dwi-Nugroho, 2013). Within the scope of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), this study concludes that SMH seemed to have a rather sympathetic view towards the poor Indonesian people, and along the way criticized the government for their poor-living conditions. The choice of certain Indonesians as the locals suggested the relativity and limitation of any representation
