Abstract
Discourse analysis represents an intriguing linguistic branch considering the fact that it is a part of practically every segment of our lives. There are various approaches to journalistic discourse analysis and the most frequently used one is probably Van Dijk’s model of journalistic discourse analysis. This approach initiates from the analysis of macro and micro structures of a text. However, a strictly linguistic approach to this type of text is insufficient for its complete understanding. Critical discourse analysis, which also takes into consideration the ideological, political and social components is therefore a continuation of Van Dijk’ s approach. This thesis englobes the analysis of two newspaper articles written by two British authors and two articles by American authors. The subject that these have in common is the migrant crisis, and the analysis of these articles will illustrate to what extent the personal viewpoint of the authors is visible in the text.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Analiza diskursa predstavlja nadasve interesantno područje lingvistike budući da je dijelom praktički svakog segmenta našeg života i djelovanja. Analiza novinarskog diskursa poznaje brojne pristupe, ali onaj najčešće korišten vjerojatno je upravo Van Dijkov model analize novinskih članaka. Ovaj pristup polazi od analize makro i mikro strukture tekstualnih sastavnica. Ipak, strogo lingvistički pristup ovakvom tipu teksta nedovoljan je za njegovo potpuno razumijevanje. Stoga se na Van Dijkov pristup nadovezuje kritička analiza diskursa koja u svojoj suštini nosi također i analizu ideološke, političke i društvene komponente teksta. Ovaj rad obuhvaća analizu dvaju novinskih članaka britanskih i dvaju članaka američkih autora. Tema koja povezuje sva četiri članka je migrantska kriza te će analiza spomenutih članaka pokazati u kolikoj mjeri je osobni stav autora vidljiv u samom tekstu.
