Two new journalistic analyses of 2020-2021 pandemic news coverage were released this week. I was interviewed in each of them.
Science journalist Faye Flam produced a new episode for her “Follow the Science” podcast, with funding from the Society for Professional Journalists. She interviewed me, David Leonhardt of the New York Times and David Wallace-Wells of New York Magazine.
And science journalist Jillian Mock quoted me and about a dozen other people she had interviewed in her piece for Medscape, ‘Dreck’ to Drama: How the Media Handled, and Got Handled, by COVID.
The journalism coverage was nothing short of “overwhelming:” For over a year, the COVID-19 pandemic has been the biggest story in the world, costing millions of lives, impacting a presidential election, and quaking economies around the world.https://t.co/myDYoRkh0g
