How legacy media has abandoned its commitment to the truth during Brazilian elections

Hey folks!

It's hard to find an argument that tries to problematize fact-checking practices. In this BJO edition, I've selected one of these rare good critics. It's the result of a debate that took place in one of the most important academic journalism conferences in the country, SBPJor. Besides that, I offer a handful of links about what's happened in Brazilian journalism last week. I hope you all enjoy.
