This paper presents a contrastive study of how The New York Times represents the US in the First World War and Second World War. More specifically, how the allies and non-allies of the US are represented. Data for this research were gathered from six news reports from World War I and six news reports from World War II. The analysis focuses on both self/other representation and mystification strategies like passivitation, transitivity and lexicon. The period in which the US participated in the war, that is, World War First or World War Second seems to have a strong bearing on the strategies employed.
