This research discusses the online media CNN.com and Foxnews.com in framing the coverage of the case of temporary suspension of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the United States. This research aims to analyze the online media’s framing of the pause on Johnson & Johnson Vaccine. The focus of this research is to Johnson & Johnson Vaccine coverage by CNN.com and Foxnews.com based on Robert N. Entman’s framing analysis. Therefore, this study uses a qualitative approach. Both online media have been limited by news numbers; CNN.com is two articles, and Foxnews.com also two articles, and we only chose news written by their own journalist, not obtained from another source. The results of this study indicate that each of the two media has its own way of delivering news related to Johnson & Johnson Vaccine. CNN.com news coverage is more sided to support the usage of the vaccine and showing concern to women. Meanwhile, Foxnews.com is more neutral by covering the news in general and doubting the usage of Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
