Resumen

La declaración del estado de alarma por la pandemia del Covid-19 ha confinado a millones de ciudadanos en sus domicilios. La situación de aislamiento tiene enormes consecuencias en múltiples niveles: social, psicológico, económico, educativo..., y también comunicativo. A partir de una encuesta realizada a 1.122 personas durante la fase de confinamiento más severa, el presente artículo tiene como objetivo analizar cómo el consumo informativo se ha visto modificado durante este período de tiempo y cómo perciben los ciudadanos la cobertura mediática realizada por los medios de comunicación. Los resultados muestran que la ciudadanía se informa más y con mayor frecuencia que antes de la crisis sanitaria. Con todo, mantiene una actitud crítica con la información que proporcionan los medios, que realizan una cobertura condicionada por la línea editorial, de forma sensacionalista y generando alarma social innecesaria.
