China rising has become a much-debated topic and remarkable pheromone in the world. The optimistic view praises China as an emerging power for modern transformation and economic growth, while the pessimistic view criticizes China as a dangerous state that potentially poses threats to the world peace. Chinese nationalism naturally has followed the increasing economic power and suspicious voices. These trends have had help developing from the media. Scholars tend to believe that the media show more nationalistic tendencies when they cover issues that involve national interests. Previous literature focuses mainly on the Chinese nationalism in relation to history and lacks to find relations with media. This study argues that the state-owned Chinese media, Global Times, has shown a greater nationalism tendency on international issue than domestic issues in the daily editorials. In order to analyze this issue, a content analysis of all the editorials pieces of The Global Times in 2013 was first performed (279 in total). Then, the coding results of editorials on domestic and international issues were compared. The findings of this study support the idea that the Global Times frames “otherness” in a nationalistic way, especially having shown more nationalism tendencies on international issues that related to national interests.
