Pandemic: A Test of the News
This is exactly the kind of news analysis that we need - Mike Davis, Author of The Monster Enters (2020).
This book argues against the rapidly expanding literature about misinformation during the Covid-19 pandemic - and that the real issues are much broader.
Mainstream news media, except Fox News, has generally done a good job in educating people about the basic facts and precautions to be taken. Pandemic: A Test of the News identifies the mainframes used to tell the media story. With some exceptions such as long reads in The New Yorker and the Guardian, the media has not included the fundamental factors that caused the pandemic, the seriousness of a medical crisis that will last for several years - and the same factors that will cause the next pandemic.
