    This research analyses how the Indonesian news media represents issue of terrorism within Indonesian context. An attempt by the news media institutions in representing reality incorporates technology to produce and to distribute texts; institution where technology is formed and controlled to produce texts; and cultural forms relate to the structuring of media technology and organization; how language and meaning are composed into codes. Further, news media institutions must also consider political and cultural contexts of the event. Thus, controversial and crucial issues like terrorist attack and international war on terror are represented in accordance with internal policy of news media institutions and the consideration of cultural and political contexts. Tempo weekly news magazine is the news media under study. The research finding indicates that Tempo focused on the investigation process and the un-cover of terrorist network. Both issues were constructed within strong political and cultural perspectives that become the characteristic of Tempo as a news media that is critical and free from any pressures. Actuality, in-depth reporting and accuracy represent Tempo’s strong and independent editorial policy.
