Brazilian journalism: It's time to wake up

Hey folks!

The headline of BJO #11 is an adaptation of the headline of my leading reading suggestion today. For those who want to understand the situation of Brazilian journalism after Bolsonaro's victory, it's an essential reading. Political journalism is upside down. The way journalists always covered politicians is not working anymore. 

It's time to wake up and reinvent itself.
Moreno Osório

| You must read (translate) this article written by Malu Gaspar for Piauí Magazine. It's one of the clearest analysis of Brazilian journalism situation after Bolsonaro's election. For her, the mainstream political journalism is part of the political system that underestimated the far-right candidate. Now it's time for self-criticism, it's time to reinvent itself. | Still on the same subject, take a look at this article of Carlos Wagner, one of the most awarded journalists in Brazil. He said Bolsonaro has adopted Trump's strategy for the press, but "we cannot repeat the same mistake our colleagues from the US and start a fight against president elected". | About the Bolsonaro-Trump-press subject, at Knight Center there is a good article in English. "This climate of hatred is a bad omen for this new era inaugurated in the country", said Emmanuel Colombié, regional director for Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in Latin America, one of the interviewed. | A video reporting about local journalism in Mariana, where the country's biggest environmental disaster took place two years ago. | This special edition of newsletter Meme News was produced by Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (Abraji). Memes about journalism. | A review of Comprova by Claire Wardle (in English). |
