Abstract

This study analyzes the politainment discourse of President Joko Widodo's (Jokowi) working visit to Sukabumi, West Java on April 8, 2018 on Twitter Jokowi and Prabowo supporters. The high level of public discussion on social media about President Jokowi's personal style during his visit to Sukabumi became a reference to illustrate the concept of politainment. From the analysis using the critical discourse analysis theory from Norman Fairclough model found that based on text analysis, texts written on Twitter Jokowi and Prabowo supporters mostly talked about President Jokowi's personal style and entertaining situation rather than the substance of the visit itself. Based on the analysis of discourse practices, information about the work visit was obtained from other social media (such as Youtube, Facebook, and Whatsapp) for later discussion on Twitter. Based on socio-cultural analysis, the discourse hides the practice of power to gather public sympathy at the 2019 Presidential Election.
