The concept of child has attracted a lot of attention in the media from the past to the present. The news that are prepared by highlighting the element of child has the feature of attracting much more attention. This high interest of the news about children may also cause the possibility of children being abused by the media. Therefore, the news should be written very carefully in order not to harm children, who are the subject of the news, emotionally. Mostly, just being mentioned in the news can be considered hazardous to the child. For all these reasons, the representations in the news texts are of great importance. The purpose of this study is to reveal how children are represented in the news in the context of the ethical responsibility principle. In this context, content analysis of 186 child themed news which were published between determined randomly 1 June to 15 June 2020 in Turkey’s four newspapers with the largest circulation, namely Hürriyet, Sabah, Posta and Sözcü was performed. In this study, which aims to reveal the presentation form of children’s news in the context of the ethical responsibility of the media, it was shown that children are mostly presented as the subject of forensic news. Children are represented mostly in forensic news in Sözcü, Hürriyet, Sabah and Posta which have the highst circulation rates in Turkey. This situation indicates that children are represented in newspapers by judicial events. Forensic news is followed by news of illness and physical violence. On the other hand, news categories in which children are represented he least are success/talent and deceased. While it is expected that children will take place in the categories of school and success/talent the most, the opposite is encountered. The data obtained are intended to demonstrate the remarkable nature area in terms of representation of children in the Turkish Press.
