Information Fuzziness and The Geography of Crisis Communication

Starting from our map on information fuzziness hosted by the online
newspaper juorno.it, we present our first researches on the subject. The
article illustrates, as an integral part of the pandemic outbreak, a complex of
media practices that define the global profile of crisis communication in the
context of an epidemic. It outlines a geographical distribution of news that
cannot be said to be true or false in itself, but a mix of different elements,
combining them and projecting them into discursive contexts at times even
differentiating themselves from those in which they were born and first
developed. Finally, the article examines a syllabary of sorts that discusses
seven theoretical categories of fuzzy information, empirically attributable in
various countries to various characters and situations.
