This study, which follows in the footsteps of Cultural Studies School, regards news as discourse and aims to analyse how discourse is formed. The assumption that the same event is reported differently depending on the ideological leanings of news corporations has been tested using the news in the Turkish media about Wikileaks documents. The news based on Wikileaks documents that appeared in the dailies Hürriyet, Cumhuriyet and Zaman, which adopt different ideological approaches was investigated and it was shown that the discourse in each one was formed differently.
