Abstract [en]

The Sino-Japanese relationship occupies the top diplomatic priority in modern history for the Chinese government. The bilateral communication, including the communication of political issues between China and Japan has always been the focus of the Chinese media. China Daily, the largest English language publication plays a particularly important role in establishing national identity as one of the most important websites which clearly expresses and propagates the national agenda. Since media representations and discourse can shape ideology, on the basis of reviewing the previous researches and theories of media representations and critical discourse analysis, this research examines how China Daily constructs discourse regarding Sino-Japanese communication issues on its website. The research methods of this study are quantitative method and critical discourse analysis (CDA). The linguistic study in media discourse is generally concerned with the reproduction of ideology in language use, which is also one of the goals of CDA. The starting point of this research is that the propaganda and dissemination for relevant Japanese news in China can be better understood in the context of Chinese foreign policy news. Studying propaganda as a narrative form and strategic research rather than prejudiced and distorted investigation allows us to delve further into the process of transforming incidents into politically powerful symbols.
