C.W. Anderson: "If the president is against basic democratic ideals, the press should be his enemy"

Hey folks,

With each passing week, the situation here in Brazil becomes more and more surreal. But it's not a surprise, I must say. But hey, we have a good surprise for you, English readers: an exclusive interview (in English) with C.W. Anderson. Thanks to Lívia Vieira, journalist and researcher who edits the Portuguese version of this newsletter. Enjoy!

Stay safe.
Moreno Osório

Read an exclusive interview (in English) with C.W. Anderson. The conversation is about the click culture in the newsrooms, ethnography, journalism crisis, Academia and the similarities between Brazilian and American politics. | In 10 weeks as president, Bolsonaro said one wrong statement per day. The headline is part of a bigger project led by Aos Fatos: a database of president's statements checked by the outlet. An excerpt of the article: "Until last March 10th, Aos Fatos found that from the 149 checkable statements made by Bolsonaro, 67 presented true information, 52 had some degree of error and another 30 contained completely false data." | Bolsonaro has tweeted a lie about a journalist from O Estado de S.Paulo. This article from The Guardian tells the story and shows why the statement of Brazil's president was a lie (in English). Columbia Journalism Review sees it as an attack against the press (in English). Brazilian Investigative Journalism Association repudiated the attack. | Also this week two people accused to kill Marielle Franco, a city councilor from Rio de Janeiro, were arrested. This op-ed from Agência Pública draws a relation network that approximate Bolsonaro family to the suspects. |
