Media serves as a conduit for public diplomacy, influencing a nation's global image. Diplomatic events are communicated through media channels, contributing to the formation of a nation's reputation. The language used in media coverage shapes how a nation is perceived by the global audience, impacting its diplomatic standing and relationships. Linguistic strategies in the discourse analysis of global politics underscore the profound impact of words in shaping narratives and influencing public perceptions. By unraveling the intricate web of framing, lexical choices, intertextuality, and persuasive language, researchers gain a deeper understanding of how media constructs meaning in the complex landscape of international affairs. Recognizing the power embedded in linguistic strategies is crucial for comprehending the multifaceted role of media in shaping global political discourse. This research article endeavors to undertake a thorough framework for discourse analysis of how media depicts global political events, intending to unravel the intricate ways in which narratives are constructed, discussions framed, and public perceptions influenced in the realm of international affairs. Employing discourse analysis as the primary methodological approach, the study aims to scrutinize the linguistic, rhetorical, and semiotic strategies employed by media outlets. The investigation will delve into the subtle nuances of language, the framing of discussions, and the use of visual elements in shaping the discourse surrounding global politics. By examining these strategies, the research seeks to provide a nuanced understanding of how media contributes to the construction of narratives, thereby shedding light on the potential impact on public opinions and contributing to the broader scholarly discourse on media's role in shaping perceptions of global political dynamics.
