This dissertation has an objective to analyze how the suspect (person accused of a crime) is mentioned in press. This study is about mass communication, its content and sociability. Using many excerpts from the papers themselves, this study shows us how the language of a newspaper can produce a symbolic violence. Some newspaper editors and publishers experience the liberty of expression and freedom of press, but frequently they are not cautious enough when describing the information a question that can offend the human rights. Factors of the order of economical and social influence this practice. Editors treat the suspect like an author because this is a tradition in news about crime. The globalization has created more competition and newspaper needs to deliverer the news everyday faster than their rival. In particular, many editors ignore definitions of specific words and even create narratives to meet their needs they did not hesitate to accuse and to label the suspect
