Objectivity (unbiased) news is an essential journalism principle in covering political news, especially general elections. However, many studies found that violations against these principles were becoming a problem in many elections in different countries. In Indonesia, most research concerns this issue more focusing on the traditional media platform. This article has aimed to explore online media on how they covered the 2019 presidential election. This research combines quantitative and qualitative text analysis methods to investigate 320 online media articles produced by eight leading online media in Indonesia two weeks before the election. By employing the journalism principle of objectivity, the concept of framing and representation, this research found that online media in Indonesia practice biased journalism in reporting the 2019 presidential election. However, each online media has a typical media bias both quantitatively and qualitatively. This study identified two categories of journalism practice, namely partisan journalism that openly supported particular candidates and at the same time attacked the rival. Secondly, the online media category tried to be professional, but they applied journalism bias by construction framing strategy and representation for the candidate they supported. This research also highlights that the bias of online media journalism was facilitated by the general principle of digital journalism routine in Indonesia that mostly focuses on speed rather than on comprehensive information and also facilitated by the existence of the hyper-link feature that legitimizes the 'cover one side' in a single article.

This study discusses prophetic communication in spreading religious messages for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak prevention in Palu, Indonesia. This study is based on qualitative research with a case study approach. This study will lead to a detailed and in-depth description of the problem regarding the condition according to what happened in the field. The case study conducted in this research took place in Alkhairaat Foundation of Palu, Central Sulawesi. To support existing data, researchers also made direct observations to the Alkhairaat Foundation. Religion is not only a guide but also a source of life. The function of religion is to regulate human life such as amidst the COVID-19 outbreak through the basis of the Qur'an and hadith. Qur'an and Hadith become the basis in the formation of religious messages that are assembled by the Ulamas through their social media. Public opinion is then filled with tendencies that lead to Islamic ideas and at the same time, there are rejections of it which portray acceptance of information to have positive and negative sides. Ulamas used social media such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and online news. Ulamas also coordinate with local government to unite the perceptions on how to face the COVID-19 that also happened in Palu. Ulamas perform their roles by conveying fatwas. The strong influence of an Ulama as a figure means that every word and deed can be a hold for the people. In this case, Ulamas should remain consistent with what was conveyed. Because the conveyed fatwa is not an individual fatwa but an institutionalized fatwa

The presence of financial technology (Fintech) on the one hand makes it easy for people to obtain credit, while on the other hand, it creates various problems. In this study, two issues will be discussed, namely the application of cyber-ethic in protecting personal data and legal issues in collecting debt on Fintech. This research is a qualitative research. Data in the study were collected by means of literature study and presented descriptively and analytically. Cyber-ethic is implemented by protecting personal data. It is a transformation of traditional ethics in cyberspace. The cyber-ethic is very necessary in the business world. The application of cyber-ethic in the world of Fintech is carried out by protecting the personal data of both borrowers and third parties. Cyber-ethic violations have implications for breaking the law. Some of the billing violations on the Fintech business are sexual harassment, defamation, threats and stalking. Borrowing customers are powerless to face debt collectors’ behavior, because the debt collectors use the borrowers’ personal data to exert psychological pressure on the debtors to pay according to the bills determined unilaterally by Fintech. This condition usually occurs in illegal Fintechs that are not registered with the Financial Services Authority.

The Covid-19 pandemic has hit many sectors in the world. To mitigate the plague, many countries have formulated a social distancing policy. The pandemic compels us to foster the use of technology to carry out daily activities. A very few articles explain how technology alters the way leaders communicate. Therefore, the objective of this research is to examine whether technology has an impact on leader communication patterns using Adaptive Leadership and Technological Determinism Theory. This research uses qualitative approach with literature review and interview as a means to collect and analyze data. Based on the current trend, there are some changes in leader communication patterns. Also, the author found that there is a gap in the adoption of technology between leaders and members of the organization. While leaders are prepared to change mindset and embrace digital practices, members are not well-prepared. They struggle to adjust to the new work environment and feel overworked and exhausted. To embrace the digital working environment, leaders need to solve the gap. We argue that the gap between the leaders and members can be addressed by enhancing or improving the way leaders and members interact. This is because to become a leader, one should engage in communication. We propose some principles about new ways of communication during the New Normal.

The model of communication which is developed in the activity is a command system in which district government officials give a command to the residents of the family planning village where the participation of the people especially those who rent houses in the management of household waste is low.
