The article analyzes the discursive structures of newspaper reports on the presidential election held in Taiwan on March 20, 2004 and the details of the texts of possible hate speech toward others in the after-election discourse. The pan-Blue supporters of Kuomintang (KMT) chairman Lien Chan rejected President Chen Shui-bian's re-election, claiming that the election was unfair. The mass media is said to play an important role in the discursive, symbolic reproduction of the ideology of elite groups. All of the reports analyzed were collected from five major daily newspapers in Taiwan.
