Abstract: Media play a vital role in democracy. Media functions as social control and as a means of information allow the public to receive free access to information. In the age of openness, fact-checked information should be provided to people rather than biased news. The research discusses the media coverage of the general election, which was conducted simultaneously in Indonesia on 17 April 2019. The study is based on the media performance concept by McQuail (Mazzoleni, 2015) that independence, objectivity, informativeness, and diversity are the indicators to measure journalist performance. The method used is content analyses of 192,800 tweets of news site’s Twitter accounts and 800 samples of news gathered from February to April 2019. Samples are taken from tweets posted by seven accounts of major news sites in Indonesia: Detikcom, Kompascom, Tempoco, Sindonews, Merdeka, Viva, and Okezone. Of the 192,800 tweets, 60,876 related to the election. The main topics of the news coverage in the s even news sites in this study are the candidates (49.08%), topics related to the election in general (15.58%), infrastructure (9.41%), law (7.08%), social welfare (6.76%), environment (6.65%), economy (5.74%), energy (2.45%), national security (2.25%), presidential debate (2.01%).
