Abstract
The contestation of the 2017 regional head election of DKI Jakarta is over, but its impact on social life and religious primordial issue is still felt across Indonesia. This situation could not be separated from the way that television (media) treats primordial issues such as religion as their media streaming themes. This study aims to describe the treatment of television as the media for Islamic issues and its relation to the theory of hidden agenda setting and its adherence to journalistic ethics (independency, accuracy, and balance). The qualitative approach by extensive library research was used to do this study. Data were analyzed qualitatively to find connection media streaming, Islamic issues and the ethics. Television as media was not working properly. It was found that the television streamed important session which was not considered important by the public. Public opinion tends to put television as media for pseudo framing and propaganda of some certain groups. The study also found in many cases, the codes of ethics were violated. Media has play role on framing religious (Islamic) issues improperly by framing session with no line to journalistic ethics. This implicated to positioning television as untrusted media on religion issues and public then tends to use social media.
