Understanding, as opposed to reading is vital for the extraction of opinions out of a text. This is especially true, as an author’s opinion is not always clearly marked. Finding the overall opinion in a text can be challenging to both hu- man readers and computers alike. Me- dia Content Analysis is a popular method of extracting information out of a text, by means of human coders. We describe the difficulties humans have and the process they use to extract opinions and offer a formalization that could help to automate opinion extraction within the Media Con- tent Analysis framework.
