“Pandemic in the Time of Trump: Digital Media Logic and Deadly Politics” by David L. Altheide https://doi.org/10.1002/symb.501 #sssi #media #attention #politics cc @sociologylens

David L. Altheide is well known for his analysis of the media and his research on how the media can be used to, for example, create fear. We have just published Professor Altheide’s article “Pandemic in the Time of Trump: Digital Media Logic and Deadly Politics” on Early View of Symbolic Interaction. In this article, Professor Altheide explores how during the pandemic President Trump engaged in attention‐based politics, or the use of media to draw attention of the largest audience to himself, at the expense of an efficient response to a major public health crisis.
