A dog day for journalists

Hey folks!

In the first day of the year, Brazilian (and foreign) journalists could fell a little bit of the bitter taste of the next four years. Bolsonaro's era has begun. And journalists were declared the enemy number one. 

Good luck to us.
Moreno Osório

| Dog day is the headline of the article of Folha de S.Paulo's Monica Bergamo about how journalists were treated during Bolsonaro's inauguration. Journalist Amanda Audi, of Intercept Brasil, have used the same metaphor: "you don't treat a dog like journalists were treated during Bolsonaro's inauguration". For columnist Miriam Leitão, journalist's work was restricted in an unthinkable and unacceptable way. | In Bolsonaro's era, journalists will have to change their behavior, wrote Janio de Freitas. He argues the caution that results in a false balance could be bad for newspapers and their publishers. | The Intercept Brasil's Leandro Demori wrote: Bolsonaro has elected the press as his enemy number one. | Here there is an interview of Deutsche Welle with political scientist Paula Diehl, of Humboldt University. She argues Brazilian journalism would need self-reflection. Diehl also thinks journalism would need to change its modus operandi. "Press will need to be aware of critics and do a discourse analysis when a politician says A is B, to show parameters which are being used to modify the meaning of words and facts". |
