Two new journalistic analyzes of news coverage on the 2020-2021 pandemic were released this week. I was interviewed in each of them.
Science reporter Faye Flam produced a new episode for his podcast “Follow the Science”, with funding from the Society for Professional Journalists. He 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 a dozen other people she interviewed in her piece for Medscape, ‘Dreck’ to the drama: how the media handled, and were handled, by COVID.
The news coverage was “overwhelming,” to say the least: For over a year, the COVID-19 pandemic was the biggest story in the world, costing millions of lives, influencing presidential elections and rocking economies around the world.https://t.co/myDYoRkh0g
