The data are analyzed by using systemic functional linguistics, especially theory of appraisal in engagement by using voice in projection. The descriptive qualitative study is applied. The findings show that both USA Today and CNN online news are reliable. The projection uses indirect speech (IS), scare quotes (SQ), scare quotes and indirect speech and adjective clause (SQISAC), adjective clause (AC), indirect speech and scare quotes (ISSQ), indirect speech and noun clause (ISNC), adjective clause and noun clause (ACNC) and direct speech (DS) with the total number 82% in USA Today and 83% in CNN. One voice (OV) is 18% in USA Today and 17% in CNN. The high number of voice in projection shows the valid source taken from the official sources and the one voice shows the implicit author’s opinion in the news
