Science in the media: a proposal for information classification based on the case study of "Folha" and "NYT" in the first year of the pandemic

by Mariana Hafiz, Sabine Righetti, Estêvão Gamba, Fernanda Quaglio de Andrade and Natália Flores

The press plays a key role in the media communication of the Covid-19 pandemic. Based on this premise, this study has analyzed a sample of texts on Covid-19 published in "Folha de S.Paulo" and "The New York Times" in the first half of the pandemic in order to categorize the information published in six groups. We found that one in ten contents dealt with "Science and new researches", the same proportion of content covering "Political crisis”. The results show that reporting on science and on crises in the Brazilian and U.S. managements of the pandemic (including misinformation coming from authorities) may have received equal attention from the press.

Discourse on Covid-19 vaccines in Brazil: an analysis in a context of epistemic crisis in the journalistic and scientific fields

by Claudine Freiberger Friedrich

In this research, we analyze the meaning of science discourse in the podcast Café da Manhã during the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil, in a context of epistemic crisis in the journalistic and scientific fields. By applying French Discourse Analysis in episodes that dealt with vaccines, we identified three main discourse units: the government was negligent and negligent; vaccination is governed by the market economy; the benefits of vaccines outweigh their risks. From these nuclei of meaning, we observe the influence of the sociopolitical climate permeated by misinformation and denial in the contruction of journalistic discourse about the techno-scientific discoveries during the pandemic.

Vaccine misinformation on digital platforms: a symbiotic movement around profitability

by Ana Regina Rêgo and Ranielle Leal

This essay addresses tensions arising from the encounter between the new forms of neoliberal capitalism in life on digital platforms and the communication market that deals with scientific misinformation. To this end, we present statistical data on misinformation about vaccines, as well as theoretical approaches concerning the platforms' negotiating possibilities. On the one hand, optimists who see in the big techs connective business models, on the other, thinkers who consider the platforms as new spaces of exploitation and human colonization, where misinformation presents itself as a strategy to attract users' attention.
