In this thesis, first of all, the relation between language and media will be outlined, i.e. the linguistics of newswriting will be explained by providing a general analysis of the processes that produce the language of the news. Furthermore, this chapter will also deal with discourse and ideology in the press, in order to demonstrate that newspaper coverage of world events is not unbiased and to show what the linguist consequently has to pay attention to when compiling a newspaper corpus.
