Agcom report traces evolution of news coverage and disinformation around Covid-19 in European countries
How did information and misinformation affect the perception around the coronavirus? How did the consumption of news change in Europe during the lockdown?
The answers to these and other questions are in the report on (di) information produced by Agcom, the regulatory agency for telecommunications in Italy.
The latest edition was released in late July. The figures presented are updated until May 2020, in order to trace the evolution of the information scenarios from the beginning of the spread of Covid-19 to the phase of gradual reopening.
Among the main conclusions is that coverage of coronavirus-related issues in Italy continues to decline progressively (Covid-19 content represented 29% of the total volume of news produced by TV, newspapers, radio and internet in the week of 25 to 31 of May).
