This research is a qualitative descriptive research aiming to get an explanation about the process of reality reconstruction done by online media and various kind of framing devices used at detik.com and kumparan.com reporting about Crisis Communication caused by Ministry of Health, Terawan Agus Putranto, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. In its execution, this research was using a framing analysis method to gain information about the way of online media’s telling story. The data were collected using qualitative content analysis applied to detik.com and kumparan.com articles published during March-April 2020. The unit of analysis was determined based on Pan and Kosicki framing analysis model. Data validity was measured by the triangulation technique. Data analysis was conducted using the interactive data analysis technique. The result of research shows that detik.com and kumparan.com have a different point of view in reconstruction in this case. Detik.com showed careful, details, and firm news reporting, while kumparan.com is much lighter and moderate. Both online media use the same framing devices, including syntactic, script, thematic, and rhetoric. In representing Terawan Agus Putranto as Minister of Health, detik.com and kumparan.com are tending to frame him as an incompetent person to deliver messages about COVID-19 in Indonesia to their public.
