Critical news analysis can focus on different kinds of segments of its textual materials. Sociolinguistics demonstrates that there are complex and subtle variations of style in utterances and texts within a community; that this variation is systematic, rule-governed and, because systematic, capable of carrying social significances. There is also a more generalized stylistic allusiveness which may almost amount to parody: some article in a newspaper may strive to sound like fiction, or scientific report, or documentary, or police investigation, legal judgement, parliamentary speech, or whatever. Finally, critical news analysis has a large area of prospective study in the newspapers’ rendering of oral sources and other individual utterances and writings. In the papers, a large amount of report is based on speeches, statements, replies to questions and interviews.
