This research was aimed to reveal the representation of World War III issue in the news report trending after the conflict between Iran and the US at the beginning of 2020. This study employed Fairclough’s three-dimensional model of critical discourse analysis. Moreover, this research used qualitative descriptive methodology. The data were articles in the New York Times and ABC News. The findings found that the New York Times Times represented world war III as an America-Iran war, with Iran as the main cause. Meanwhile, ABC News represented world war III as an exaggerated issue. Second, through the findings of the interpretation or discursive practice, the writer found that New York Times attempted to construct an ideology that it was not the mistake of America to start world war III, instead America acted as the hero that stops Iran’s violence. Meanwhile, ABC News is assumed to construct an ideology to see world war III as an exaggerated issue and to see the war from a different perspective such as different form fo war (cyberwar/trade war). This research is expected that the reader will pay attention to the issue that presents in news media that is related to social context. Besides, this study as well as the result of the study might be a reference, an overview, and additional information for other researchers. Keywords: Critical discourse analysis, Fairclough’s three-dimensional model, Representation, World War III
