Abstract
This thesis is a contribution to the analysis of the news media’s influence on Facebook users, guided by the use of Fairclough's critical discourse analysis (CDA). The aim of this thesis is to analyze how two news media articles can influence Facebook users perceptions on refugees and refugee law. This analysis tries to gain further knowledge on the dominance effect the media has on users of social media networks. The two articles that were analyzed were published in the German media and shared on Facebook, during the German refugee crisis, in October 2015. The articles were chosen by searching on Germany’s Facebook platform using the hashtag #Flüchtlinge (refugees) and #Deutschland (Germany).
