           Content Analysis

    • Authors: Devie Rahmawati, Deddy Mulyana, Giri Lumakto, Mila Viendyasari, Wiratri Anindhita
      Pages: 222 - 234
      Abstract: During life-threatening situations such as the Covid-19 pandemic, disinformation is rife. While people project their affective aspects into understanding the situation, their fear of Covid-19 interferes with their logical and reasonable assessment of disinformation. Less credible information such as rumors becomes reliable for some people. This study aims to map the disinformation category based on the Ministry of Communication and Information report from January to March 2020. There are 359 hoaxes with five categories and 30 sub-categories. This study uses qualitative content analysis as a method. The study results revealed that most of the disinformation during the Covid-19 pandemic was related to the spread of hoaxes on health issues. This research implies that several recommendations are made to respond to the urgency of handling disinformation during Covid-19 in Indonesia, such as initiating digital literacy and media literacy in the national education system.

  • The Dynamics of Mass Media Resistance toward Google

    • Authors: Irwan Nugroho
      Pages: 278 - 291
      Abstract: The dominance of digital advertising by Google had an impact on decreasing mass media revenue. Meanwhile, Google was a search engine company on the internet that mostly relies on news content. During this decade, the mass media in America, The European Union, and Australia had demanded Google to pay for their content. The local authorities intend to create a balanced bargaining position among them. However, Google continued to refuse to pay on the grounds that it has brought heavy traffic to news publisher websites. In 2020, Google was finally willing to pay for news content by launching a News Showcase. This partnership was claimed to be profitable for publishers and readers. However, it had also been criticized because Google remained in charge of determining the terms and conditions. It also undermined The Copyright Act of European Union amendments designed to create fair negotiations between the mass media and Google.
