Continuing the discussion on CDA and methods, I would like to suggest
looking at several publications which assemble a variety of different
CDA approaches which apply very different methodologies, from
ethnography, argumentation analysis up to SFL..
For example, Methods of CDA (Wodak and Meyer editors) Sage 2001, Methods
of Text and Discourse Analysis (Titscher et al.) 2000, Sage; CDA.
Theories and Methodologies, Palgrave 2003 (Weiss and Wodak editors) and
the new book on Text Analysis Norman Fairclough 2003 (Routledge).

WIth regard to the following question:
>   3.. In CDA, are there risks of, say, reverse political bias? Seeing
defects of the conservatives, but much less of "progressists" ? E.g.,
what could be said about discourse from and about Cuba ? Kabila ? In
siding with the perceived oppressed, should one accept d'avoir tort avec
Sartre plut?t que d'avoir raison avec Aron ?
Have a look at my article:
Kuzar, Ron. 2001. "Sorry, Prof. Sokal, but You have Missed the
Poststructuralist Train". RASK: International Journal of Language and
Communication: 14: 3-32.
