Abstract

The outbreak of corona virus disease 2019 (Covid-19) has created a global health crisis that has had a deep impact on the way we perceive our world and everyday lives. Mass Media is playing an important role in the Covid-19 response and has always constituted the necessary infrastructure for modern public sphere. The public sphere is where citizens communicate about the rule of their society. Digital public sphere has distributed essential information, diverse forms of knowledge and argumentation about facts, problems and possible solutions. The focus of current research was: how are rubric, categorization, and ideology in the construction of social reality about Covid-19 on digital platform media as counterhegemonic space? This is qualitative research and using constructivism paradigm. Through Murray Edelman’s framing analysis method, digital media has recently been thought of as national, media specific, and as part of cultural domain. Digital public sphere improves most people’s ability to form their own opinions, debating issues of collective interest and making their own choices of actions on the basic of knowledge about their society. As counterhegemonic space, digital public sphere encourages people to share their view against hegemony through the use of persuasion while raising awareness.
