Abstract

The paper aims to problematize the new phenomena and characters of social change and the institute of crisis caused by the Corone-Covid pandemic in 2019. In that spirit, the paper emphasizes the infodemia or media sale of fear as a manipulative category that deviates from the originality of media principles. Accordingly, media production and the sale of fear is the result of political-media-corporate interests of a global character. The media sale of fear with its mechanisms converges and problematizes in the context of the digital ‘smart’ age the arsenal of manipulative patterns, stereotypes and prejudices of the media-shaped 21st century. In the context of the topic, the paper also refers to aspects of technological supervision as a form of ‘fight’ against Covid 19.
