With a population of 765 and a sample size of 533, the study reveals Punch's consistent rise in yearly research journal-sourced health news, contrasting with Tribune's fluctuating trend. The Punch heavily favors foreign research (98.1%), while Tribune maintains a more balanced approach with 51.4% from Nigerian sources. The findings underscore disparities in editorial strategies, raising concerns about the visibility of local health research. The study recommends increased collaboration with local researchers and enhanced accessibility of local research, for a more comprehensive and contextually relevant portrayal of health topics to curb health misinformation.</em></p> 2024-02-14T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Dinamika Dakwah Komunitas Te Uti Mongaji 2023-12-06T11:29:51+07:00 Taufik R.

Nasibu [email protected] <p><em>In such a dynamic information era, keeping the younger generation's understanding of religion relevant has become increasingly challenging. This challenge is not only about theoretical understanding of religion, but also about the application of Islamic religious values ​​and teachings in everyday life. This research focuses on the dynamics of the "Te Uti Mongaji" community da'wah in Lopo Village, Batudaa Pantai District, Gorontalo Regency in increasing understanding of religious knowledge among Islamic youth. This research uses a qualitative approach. This research uses interview, observation and documentation study data collection techniques. Research findings reveal that this community is not only a provider of religious education, but also a strong agent in shaping teenagers' religious identity. However, challenges such as budget limitations, invalid legal status, and consistent participant attendance are obstacles that need to be overcome.</em></p> 2024-02-06T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Komunikasi di Media Sosial: Perspektif Kesetaraan Gender 2023-11-15T22:20:06+07:00 Ela Indah Dwi Syayekti [email protected] <p><em>Mass media and social media generally use women as the subject and object of their content. Unfortunately, the exploitation is unbalanced and even impressive, only making women an object to be seen from the feminine side. The aim of this research is to explain the creation of communication in the media, especially social media, from a gender perspective. This research uses a qualitative approach with a library study method. The results shows that gender-sensitive social media communications can be achieved by: 1) strengthening digital literacy for the public, building a networked digital community to strengthen gender empowerment and content through education and social media discussion spaces; 2) educating about women's needs in the fields of politics, social, cultural, and violence using gender-friendly language; 3) presenting gender-neutral social media content or posts by showing individuals as subjects; and 4) engaging men to break the culture of patriarchy through equal communication.</em></p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Personal Branding Brigadir Agus Kurniawan untuk Meningkatkan Citra Polisi Melalui Aplikasi Tiktok 2023-11-18T05:04:58+07:00 Ririn Desi Fitriyani [email protected] Joni Rusdiana [email protected] <p><em>In recent years, the image of the police has declined with various cases involving the names of POLRI members, this will of course have an impact on the level of public trust in the POLRI itself. However, this is in contrast to what Brigadier Agus Kurniawan, a Bhabinkamtibnas officer in Jeron Village, Boyolali Regency, did. He provides creative services and is named Kopi Curhat Pak Bhabin which is uploaded via the tiktok account @kopi_curhat_pakbhabin. This research aims to find out what kind of personal branding you want to show to the public. The research method used is descriptive qualitative with personal branding theory. With the conclusion that the personal branding shown is in accordance with Rampersad &amp; Montoya’s 11 personal branding criteria, namely; Authenticity, Integrity, Consistency, Specialization, Authority, Distintiveness, Relevant, Visibility, Persistence, Goodwill, and Performance. The personal branding efforts carried out by Brigadier Agus Kurniawan through Tiktok indirectly improved the image of the police in the eyes of the public.</em></p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Representasi Agama di Media Massa dan Kegagalan Sekulerisme 2024-05-18T10:55:38+07:00 Zaenal Muttaqin [email protected] Ari Hikmawati [email protected] Elvi Na'imah [email protected] Agus Wedi [email protected] <p>This paper examines the religious issues represented in secular media. Secularism has been regarded unavoidable since the development of science and technology and in line with positivistic idea. However, since the second half of the 20<sup>th</sup> century, sociologists of religion have argued that secularism is no longer relevant due tu the insurgence of religions and religious institutions around the world. In particular, this paper discusses how Solopos –a newspaper in Surakarta- publish articles related to the topic of religions. The research finds that even though the media is a secular media, it still publishes articles on religious issues. There is no specific policy regarding this publication, but it represents the contexts of the society that still regard religions as an important part of their life. This paper concludes that secularism has failed both in the public space such as media and in the mindset of Surakarta people.</p> 2024-05-23T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023
