This study was conducted on the assumption that news coverage of media affects construction of reality of audiences, and examines the coverage patterns of news about '2008 Candlelight Rally' and its ideological meanings. The objects of research are news report articles from April 1st to August 31st of 2008 in Chosun ilbo and Hankyoreh Shinmun. Focusing on Baek's Semiotic Network Analysis(SNA) and discourse analysis, the research was conducted with the news coverage patterns and SNA of news texts, and discourse structure. The results are as follows. Difference of phase 1 through SNA is the cause of movement which 'Chosun ilbo' indicates 'MBC PD Diary' unlike 'Hankyoreh Shinmun'. In phase 2, Chosun ilbo shows some elements of 'Changes of features of Candlelight Rally', 'suspicion of secret syndicates of Rally', and 'Seriousness on diffusion of false information in Internet media'. However, unlike Chosun ilbo, they criticized 'conservative press' and 'government' insisting about 'usefulness of internet media', 'voluntary participation of attendees' and 'suspicion of syndicates'. In phase 3, Chosun ilbo and Hankyoreh Shinmun criticized each other's distorted news coverage in relation with controversial issue about intentional distortion of 'MBC PD Diary' and 'oppressing movement of conservative newspaper advertiser'. In phase 4, there appeared some elements meaning 'termination of Candlelight Rally' in Chosun ilbo. Meanwhile, elements related to 'continuation of Candlelight Movement' appeared in Hankyoreh Shinmun, so both two papers showed semiotic signs about the inclination of their ideologies. For the result of discourse analysis, there was a big difference between two papers. From first phase to fourth, Chosun ilbo dealt about 'negative discourse of Candlelight Rally' and 'pro-government discourse', and 'pro-pro US policies discourse', while Hankyoreh Shinmun showed opposite discourses such as 'positive discourse of Candlelight Rally', 'anti-government discourse', and 'Anti-pro US policies discourse'. Eventually, two newspapers showed that whenever newspaper companies produce news articles, they made those coincide with their ideological features, or build new meanings through the process connecting with other events. Finally, these two newspapers mentioned that when public opinions made news about the question pending, they proceed their news to unite their Ideological Meanings or they made new ideological meaning.
