How to explain Bolsonaro's eschatological tweet?

Hey folks!

It's getting harder and harder to understand (and live in) Brazil. How journalism should cover the country's president? How much of his behavior is authentic? Or it's just a strategy to draws media attention and keep his supporters/voters mobilized? Nobody knows.

Stay safe.

| If you can understand a lit bit of Portuguese, listen to today's episode of Café da Manhã (Breakfast), a podcast of Folha de S.Paulo. The podcast hosts interview journalists Juliana Barbassa, NYT's international desk senior editor, and Tom Phillips, Latin America correspondent for The Guardian. They told how they've tried to explain to their readers Bolsonaro's bizarre tweet. BuzzFeed Brasil tracked the obscene video published by Brazil's president. | The Intercept Brasil has analyzed the closeness between Jair and Carlos Bolsonaro Twitter profiles, suggesting the president's son is tweeting for him. | AzMina magazine, a publication focused on gender coverage, has launched an app to help women to fight against violence. | In its turn, Globo newspaper has launched Celina, a platform dedicated to the women coverage. At the same time, the publication has affirmed its commitment to diversity, opening the numbers about men and women in the newsroom. | Nexo has used DataViz to show the number of journalists killed while carrying out their jobs since 1992. |
