Abstract

The Jakarta Post.com played a major role in delivering the latest information for Covid-19 virus. The current issue regarding the Covid-19 pandemic is about (1) the role of the government in making policies to deal with Covid-19, especially in Jakarta, (2) The role of the media in conveying information about Covid-19. News is not necessarily present in the community, but is mobilized by the media. Information relating to an issue, framed in such a way as to be presented to the reader. This research wants to see how the Covid-19 issue is framed through the news of The Jakarta Post.com in March 2020. The method used is the R. Entman Framing analysis. This study analyzes the news framing of Covid-19 using four elements of R. Entman: defining the problem, diagnosing the cause, moral judgment, and treatment recommendations. The conclusion of this study states that The Jakarta Post.com puts the news in a balanced manner. Apart from providing support to the government, this media also acts as a control medium for government policies, particularly the Jakarta government.
