This thesis studies the representation of FPI and the matters related to FPI in Jakarta Post in the period of May 2012 in relation with the Lady Gaga Show Controversy. The significance of this period is that, FPI was reported in the media as the Islamic most extreme group in Indonesia. According to that, The Indonesian Government was extremely being pushed to dismiss the organization in order to maintain the law and order and in anticipating the social conflicts. This study focused on the media discourse on Lady Gaga controversy. Throughout analyzing 19 headlines (news lead) and 19 full-text news stories, the study shows that FPI represented in a very negative way in these period. In the this period, FPI is introduced as a dangerous powerful public enem. The study uses the analytical components of CDA and the grammar of transitivity of SFG to analyze this case. In addition, typology of news bias by Dennis McQuail was supplemented. The conclusion made by this study asserts that, TJP can be seen as not in favor of FPI and has attempted to build a biased public opinion in line with its hidden ideology inserted through its news publication.
