|Source:||Narumol Chantrasupawong (2012) A News Narrative Construction of theMay 19 Crackdown as Reportedon CNN Online: A Semiotic Analysis. University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce Journal Vol.32 No.4.||Abstract:||Since news is a narrative, this paper aims to study its construction. Four online news reports from the CNN.com website about the crackdown on the "Red Shirts" protracted demonstrations in Bangkok on May 19, 2010 are selected for this study. The "quest model" and "semiotic square" are used to analyze how the news is constructed. These are proposed by A J Greimas, whose ideas are influenced by Ferdinand de Saussure, the founder of Structuralism. Understanding its deep structure and its grammar from which the surface structure of the news we read is derived can confirm and reproduce the Thai political ideology that violent means by military forces has always been used on protesters in order to restore peace and return the country to normalcy.||URI:||https://scholar.utcc.ac.th/handle/6626976254/316||ISSN:||0125-2437||Rights:||This work is protected by copyright.
