    ABSTRACT: We will try to develop a theoretical framework that will allow us to critically explain some features of journalism language, using the concepts of tipification, frame, and ideology. Throughout some examples of Portuguese news focused on the representation of migrants, we will try to make a small demonstration of how ideology, frame and tipifications are articulated in order to make sense of social world. In the final part of this essay, we’ll try to discuss journalism reform movements – such as civic journalism – that supports changes in journalism practice in order to engage it with democratic deliberation and citizen’s participation. Our argument is that any approach that supports the civic role of journalism in democratic deliberation must take into consideration the role performed by journalistic language in the social construction of reality. So, it must consider not only the agenda setting, but also the way as journalistic discourse represents issues, events and social identities. Finally, we will try to show that it is necessary to launch a programme of research in journalism studies, drawing on the contribution of Critical Discourse Analysis and sociocognitive (phenomenological) approaches.
