Abstract

Visual plays an important role in giving a clear picture of what happened to the audience. Visual can be considered as a powerful communication tool to trigger high emotional response and can be remembered rather than words. The visual used in reporting a crisis story tries to help the audience understand what is happening. This article aims to identify visual frames utilized in the Lahad Datu crisis news coverage, published in Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian. The content analysis method was used to analyze the visuals displayed in both newspapers within 20 days; from 1st to 20th March 2013. This study uses visual framing model introduced by Rodriguez and Dimitrova (2011) which proposes a four-stage visual frame model i.e., first, visual as a denotative system; second, visual as a semiotic-stylized system; third, visual as a connotative system; and visuals as an ideological representation. These systems can be applied to analyze any type of media visual content or audience perceptions of the content. The finding shows that both Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian use a denotative system in reporting visually the Lahad Datu crisis. The two frames highlighted were political and humanitarian while the leader frame dominated visual coverage in the context of the crisis news. The finding also shows that both newspapers use visual resources from international agencies such as the Associated Press (AP), AFP and Reuters.
