This study focuses on the news frame on the news title with the theme of the Shia conflict in Sampang. This qualitative descriptive research uses a critical paradigm. Data were obtained from,, Kabar Madura and Madura Indepth in 2011-2021. The media framed the Shia Sampang conflict in the government's frame, the Shia community's frame, and the case of intolerance. Tempo and Kompas frame the government as passive in dealing with conflicts and there is forced conversion of faith, but Kabar Madura and Madura Indepth frame the opposite. Furthermore, Tempo framed the government as being involved in intimidating Shia Sampang residents into converting their beliefs; Shia residents are framed as victims who suffer and are oppressed and peace initiators, and this conflict is a Sunni-Shia conflict. Meanwhile, Kompas framed that the government threw the responsibility for resolving the Shia Sampang conflict on other government institutions and did not anticipate the conflict; the Shia people of Sampang still empowered enough to resist; and this conflict is an internal family conflict. Kabar Madura and Madura Indepth framed that the Sampang Shia conflict had been completed, facilitated by the Sampang Regional Government and the Sampang Shia residents as citizens who were not persecuted and forced to convert.
