PEREYRA, Rocío. Journalism and COVID-19. Homogenization of Content in Argentina. A Case Analysis. Rev. mex. opinión pública [online]. 2021, n.31, pp.55-73.  Epub 11-Oct-2021. ISSN 2448-4911.

The processes of homogenization of journalistic information in Argentina are analyzed, in this paper, based on the study of a news item, published by the Clarín newspaper, that involved president Alberto Fernández and was published during the month of April 2020, with minimal modifications, in 102 media outlets, in different cities of the country. The content analysis is proposed as a methodological technique to study the informative consonance and the link between media agendas (intermedia agenda setting), based on the review of the Agenda Setting Theory in general, and on the concept of arterial process from Breed, in particular. The results show a rapid spread of the news, a decontextualization of the events that occurred, the omission of the origin of the information, and a lack of source checking. In the conclusions we discuss the practices of digital journalism that installs an agenda through the replication of news and puts in tension the plurality of information, undermining the critical and reflective construction of public opinion.
