This Study is aimed to describe how the genre and ideology is realized on newspaper editorial’s text published in Medan as known as Surat Kabar Terbitan Medan (SKTM). Three newspapers locally published in Medan which have an editorial were used as the object of research, that is, Analisa, Sinar Indonesia Baru (SIB), and Waspada. Findings in editorial’s genre are analytical exposition, hortatory exposition, review, and explanation. The ideology is realized in the form of reminding, criticizing, and appealing. The results of the research show that Medan local newspapers are still enjoying the euphoria of free press from the authoritarian press.
