The corpus of data were 64.000 words that contain the news about the image of Indonesian presidential candidates in 2014 taken from Daily Kompas online and Daily Republika online. The findings show that Daily Republik’s news more dominantly describes both JW and PS in positive image than in negative image. On the other hand, Daily Kompas’ news more dominantly describes JW’s positive image than his negative image. Contrarily, PS is describeb more dominantly in negative image than in positive image.
