Abstract

The paper is aimed to reveal the relative position of media before the public and the ruler. It is to find out how the press took their position. How the press, in this case Jakarta Post, positions itself can be seen, partly, through the way of relationship among the participants involved. To achieve the purpose, it focuses on editorial column of The Jakarta Post concerning the political issue. It can be concluded that the ruler in the end of New Order era is very powerful. This can be seen from the way the media presents the issue on the last general election in the era. This fact is proved from the grammatical resources of MOOD system, Modality, comment and adjunct. The media at the time tended to put its position lower than the ruler but higher than the public. It represented to function as a control for the public reaction to the general election than to control the ruler’s misconduct in holding the general election. Keywords: the Jakarta Post, general election, editorial.
