This article is a selection of a scientific research that has been done for understanding the “guidelines” and “theoretical and intellectual paradigms” in Press T.V `s news discourse. The theoretical approach adopted in this study is a compilation of discourse, representation, agenda-setting and illustration theories and the method used is “Practical Discourse Analysis Method” (PDAM) and the time interval was May and June,2011. The results obtained show that Press T.V `s news policy regarding internal events in Bahrain, Libya and Yemen has a “significant difference” with the representation of Syria evolutions so that in representing the internal evolutions of Yemen, Bahrain and Libya, the “rejection’ of the ruling regimes in the countries is persisted with an emphasis on the examples of corruption and suppression and torture and agenda-setting of issues such as “human rights violation” and “violation of religious freedoms”. But in Syria`s case, the necessity of “reform” (and not revolution) has been emphasized. In the foreign dimension, “rejecting” the foreign interventions is the main representation policy in Yemen, Bahrain, Libya and Syria evolutions, and in Syria`s case, the negation of international seclusion of Bashar Al-Assad government has been emphasized as a representation policy. The channel`s inner news policy regarding the evolutions in Egypt and Tunisia was “tracking the people`s claims”, and the external news policy regarding Egypt was “rejecting any relationship with Israel” and there wasn’t any news about Tunisian foreign affairs during the time interval.
