China, democracy, framing, Hong Kong, movement, Taiwan


Nowadays, people can access different types of media to get information. Podcast is one of them and became more popular in recent years. In Hong Kong, the anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill movement took place in 2019. In this research, we are looking for the frames that Kylie and Ken as the hosts of the Taiwanese podcast - Bailingguo News used when they talked about the movement. The researcher applied framing theory to conduct this study, using textual analysis to analyze five episodes that mentioned the movement on Hong Kong from Bailingguo News. The researcher extracts the themes in the podcasters' conversations and the frames they used on the movement, the protesters, the Chinese and Hong Kong governments, and the message they disseminated to the Taiwanese. The result showed that both the movement and protesters were framed positively. The Chinese and Hong Kong government were framed negatively. There were four main themes in the clips “democracy”, “solidarity and similarity”, “empathy” and “sadness”.
