Student's Opinion on Covid-19 Discourse in The Media News Room

Hayu Lusianawati, Launa Launa

Abstract


Students are one of the vulnerable social groups who have their own perceptions of the Covid-19 phenomenon. As an intellectual community, students certainly have critical-idealist ideas that are important to explore. This qualitative research aimed to understand students' perceptions, whose discourse was extracted from the opinion room of online media news (websites) related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Through functional discourse theory and descriptiveinterpretive analysis methods, this study concluded that student discourse related to Covid-19 was still a general discourse, had not touched the needs and was directly related to the real-substantive problems students faced as the affected vulnerable group. In terms of the opinion texts they wrote, the students' idealism was reflected in the critical discourse construction on the performance of the government, considered ineffective in dealing with the pandemic and their academic alignments with the public interest related to the phenomenon of the Covid-19 pandemic as the social background of discourse.
