What Brazil's New Social Media Rules Mean for the Internet

"President. Jaya bolsonaro signed a decree on monday that temporarily bands social media platforms from removing many types of content including misinformation about cova nineteen and the country's upcoming presidential election brazil's new rules appear to be the first in the world to make certain types of content take downs illegal under national law even as other national governments around the world implement rules that force social media companies to take down more types of content proactively. What do the rule say the decree targets. What bolsonaro presidential press office called arbitrary removal of content including accounts profiles and posts under the new rules. Tech companies must only remove posts if they fall under a narrow set of definitions including terrorism threats of violence sexual crimes and cyber attacks and less. They obtain a court order. The measures would prevent social media companies from easily removing content including medical and political misinformation. Bolsonaro has repeatedly posted misinformation about covert nineteen and has claimed. That voter fraud would be the only explanation if he loses the upcoming october. Twenty twenty two presidential election. Something pollsters say is likely facebook. Twitter and youtube have all previously removed kovic misinformation shared by bolsonaro. The rules are bad news for brazil. Havi air palero. The argentina based policy director for the digital rights group access now told time adding that the decree ties the hands of internet platforms to deal with hate speech disinformation campaigns and coordinated harassment. We need democratic rules to make content moderation and platforms more transparent fair and accountable palero said but these attempts from illiberal politicians are far from that and aim only at giving a free pass to anti democratic speech.

They urged an upcoming U. N climate summit. To quote listen to the cry of the Earth. Back in this country. Thousands of firefighters in Northern California have made more gains against the giant Cal door fire. Their progress in the Lake Tahoe region is being bolstered by cooler temperatures, higher humidity and easing winds. Fire is now about 50% contain and on Wall Street stocks mostly gave ground. The Dow Jones industrial Average lost. 269 points to close at 35,100. The NASDAQ managed to add 10 points inching to another all time high. The S and P 500 slipped 15. Still to come on the news hour how the Gulf Coast and the Northeast dig out from Ida's wake. The director of the African Centers for Disease Control discusses global vaccine inequity. A New Jersey town heavily impacted by the 9 11 attacks reflects on that tragic day, plus much more. This is the PBS news hour from W. To studios in Washington and in the West from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. For the second time In less than a week, President Biden visited communities hit hard by IDA. The president made several stops in New Jersey and New York. At least 50 death in six states or associated with the storm that hit last week and separately. In Louisiana. At least 15 deaths are linked with IDA. President Biden said that extreme weather events have made it clear the country must take meaningful action. These waves crashed through the streets here, testing the aging infrastructure and taken lives. More lives were taken here, then down in Louisiana. Climate change poses an existential threat to our lives to our economy, and the threat is here. It's not going to get any better. Question. Can it get worse? We can stop it from getting worse. While President Biden visited the northeast. Hundreds of thousands of residents and businesses in Louisiana have not had power, water or other basic needs for over a week. The news hours. Robbie Chavez is in New Orleans and he joins me again tonight. So, Robbie very good to have you there on the ground forest. The president was in the area where you are. Last week, he promised federal resources. Now we know that the state is promising to get the power back on by the middle of this week. Where does it stand? Judy? Look, It's day nine of the recovery and people in Louisiana are still struggling. But things here in New Orleans are getting a whole lot better 70 to 80% of people have their power back on. That means that they're less lines at the gas station. More of the gas stations are coming online. The grocery stores are opening. There's also mail delivery that started but it's a whole different story along the Gulf. Coast where they've got a direct hit from Hurricane Ida 98% of the people still without power and the basic needs. They need clean clothes. They need water. They need communications. They need power. They need housing, so it's really, really tough for them. And the word here on the ground is once that things start to move into that rebuilding phase. It will be just as tough because There's a shortage of supply their securities of labor. That was the case before during the pandemic, and now after the hurricane, it's even worse and Robbie as is so often the case after these major storms deaths Taking place after the storm has passed were more deaths announced today in Louisiana. Tell us what you've learned about that. Yeah, The most recent death we heard about is a man who didn't have power didn't have enough oxygen. And so he passed away in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. There have been 17 deaths due to Hurricane Ida. A lot of those due to carbon monoxide poisoning after the storm. We've seen four people, according to the Louisiana Department of Health, Die from Using these generators improperly. Nearly 140 people went to the hospital from improperly using the generated. We're also continuing to see problems with those vulnerable populations are senior citizens. Those with special needs those low and fixed income those also with medical challenges. They're just trying to get basic resources to keep them alive, and it's tough. The challenges are just enormous. How are people dealing with all this? Make no bones about it. It has been a very tough last few days for everyone in southeast Louisiana. But you know the spirit of Louisiana. The spirit of New Orleans is alive. You know, it warms your heart when you see strangers walking up to strangers and helping each other to fix their homes to fix meals, some of the restaurants in the area of donated all their food. There's been these mass barbecues to feed folks, and that allows them to have a hot meal but also get together as a community and start to talk. Talk about some of the experience that they've had with Hurricane Ida and Robbie. One other thing we've been reading about today, and that is even cemeteries affected by this. Yes, a big problem. You know whenever it floods the cemeteries, the tombstones in Louisiana are above ground because you know most of the areas below sea level. Whenever we get these huge floods, the caskets literally will pop out of the tombstones and end up down the street in people's yards cluttered with the The rest of the debris. There is a special task force in Louisiana that then tries to get all of those caskets back to the place of burial. But it's not an easy task After Katrina. They did kind of mandate that there should be some identification inside those caskets. But we understand from Hurricane Laura last year, they're still trying to replace some of those caskets to their final resting place. So difficult 11 issue after another Robbie Chavez reporting for us from New Orleans. Thank you so much. Thank you, Judy. As the U. S and other Western countries discussed the rollout of covid vaccine boosters in Africa and other parts of the world, many millions are still waiting for the very first shot. Covid has killed.

Message in 20 states across Brazil. As the coronavirus death toll in the country passes half a million protesters demand the resignation of the man, they say is to blame President Jair Bolsonaro epitome. We allowed this person to become the president of the Republic and we are seeing the consequences of that today in the absurd number of deaths due to the pandemic. Due to the irresponsible way in which he handled the pandemic in Brazil, Brazil, the president has been famously dismissive of the health crisis opposing masks and social distancing measures. And he's been criticized for slow rollout of vaccines. Only 17% of the population has fully vaccinated with the presidential election looming next year. Mr. Bolsonaro's approval rating is at a record low and he faces investigation in the Senate on charges of corruption. As night fell, skirmishes broke out between protesters and police. Fired tear gas and through flash bangs. Such clashes are likely to persist, putting President Bolsonaro under increasing pressure as the pandemic continues to exact a devastating toll.

I got more details from our Americas editor Candice Pet Well, this is the third consecutive months of these record figures of deforestation in the Amazon is really raising serious questions about President Jair Bolsonaro's commitments to fighting deforestation. Environmentalists argue that the deforestation levels have been increasing because his policies and his environment minister have been slowly dismantling the legal protection measures. That police and control deforestation in the Amazon. The minister himself is under investigation by prosecutors for alleged involvement in the export of illegal would, for example, to be sold to the European Union and the United States. The Environment Ministry is also frozen funding to the environmental policing body and frozen their normal ability to patrol and monitor deforestation. President Bolsonaro has promised to eradicate illegal deforestation in the Amazon by 2030. Is that even realistic? Well, it's certainly contradicts a lot of what he's been saying.

"bolsonaro" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories

"He's never behaved wearing a mask acting reverential to the dead stopping criticizing the vaccines acting more responsible eighth says i put that down to lula's criticism. According to bureau the political analyst the arrival of another political heavy-weight has forced bolsonaro to rethink his usual strategy on the pandemic since he took office in two thousand nineteen bolsonaro was essentially alone in the ring with no real political challengers. He is a master of setting the press agenda and distracting from. He doesn't wanna talk about by saying provocative things including around but lula also knows how to set the agenda while he has yet to confirm if he will run in twenty twenty two. The former president's speech struck a more conciliatory note than he has for several years out to the business community and the political centre ribiero says the leftist has already received support for his pro science. Start from key centre right figures. I come from a region of brazil where people are very resistant to lula and voted massively for bolsonaro and many people. Now say well you can say whatever you want about lula but he was right about this or that. Ribeiro says if bolsonaro keeps being bolsonaro lula is going to appear more and more presidential just by contrast..

Despair and disparities: covid-19 consumes Brazil

"Has just gone through. Its deadliest week of the pandemic daily fatalities. Hit a record level of more than nine thousand nine hundred on thursday bringing the total number of deaths to more than two hundred sixty five thousand and cases to more than eleven million. The discovery of contagious new corona virus variant in the amazon region has fueled the brutal second wave but the government's response has been slow and patchy and has failed to contain the spread. The sense that you get living here is sad and almost fatalistic. It feels like this country has given up on dealing with this pandemic in a responsible life saving way. Many months ago ceremonies. Lynn is brazil correspondent. Even though we are all seeing that the cases are higher than they've ever been. The hospitals are full in nearly every part of the country. The restrictions that have been introduced feel completely out of tune with that reality. They've been late. they've been minimal. And some cities are slightly stricter than others. But i think the feeling that most brazilians have is that covert is just going to happen. Overtake this country like a tidal wave. And there's nothing that anyone can do about it and the concern right now. Is that the. The health system is buckling under the weight. Right so the difference between this second wave compared to the first wave is that for the first several months of the pandemic. The virus was sort of ping-pong between different brazilian states whereas now most of the country's twenty six states are seeing their hospitals at or near capacity. And there's really a limited ability to sort of transfer patients or doctors or supplies between the different states recently. The health secretary of the amazonian state of honea mentioned this desperation in a video aimed at those who weren't taking the current virus seriously is typical seymour's known them was laid to swap mine. Nothing lead today but also by a sweatshirt but he says we have no icu. Beds for your mother your father for your aunt. It doesn't matter if you're rich. Poor young old. We simply have no. Icu beds available and those rising in numbers. Those strains that are coming about. Is that down two new variants of the viruses. That the big problem here. That's definitely part of the story. They found this new variant in the amazonian city of manaus late last year. It's called p. One and recent studies show that. It's one point four to two point two times more contagious than other versions of the virus. And the really scary thing is that it looks like it is much more capable of reinfecting people who have already been infected. That might be why people in manaus were hit really badly by second wave. Even though some studies suggest that as many as three quarters of the population had been infected in the first wave the other thing that seems really scary is that it looks like this. Current wave is affecting young people and much higher numbers than before so this variant is clearly causing some of the trouble. But you also say that. There's a certain sense of fatalism. That's contributing here. I mean how much does that have to do with the leadership. We talked a lot before. About how president of brush off the pandemic bolsonaro hasn't changed a bit at a recent event. He told brazilians to stop whining about the krona virus. Sugar jimmy because the club and said how long are you going to keep crying about it. But it's not just him the first wave you saw politicians trying to take a different stance and even going to the supreme court to fight for their right to shut things down even though the president disagreed this time it's different. Brazil has been seeing cases creep up for months now and it's only in the past few weeks. That mayors and governors have really started implementing serious restrictions closing businesses fulltime rather than. Just say from eleven pm to five. Am which is what we had in sao paulo for a few weeks. And what do the brazilian people think about. The the patchy measures have been put into place. I think there's a real split. You definitely see the outrage that brazilians especially the more educated and richard brazilian have had from the beginning. But there's also a real feeling among the middle class and the working class that putting in more restrictions is going to do more harm than good because the economic situation is so bad. Unemployment has barely come down from its high of around fourteen percent and the emergency cash payments. The federal government paid people for nine months last year. Have now been cut off to. Millions of people were basically plunged into poverty when the clock struck midnight on december. Thirty first congress is trying to push past a smaller version of the cash payments. But it's going to take some time but certainly one path out of all of these kinds of trade offs is vaccination. How is the country's program of of inoculation going. It's had a frustratingly slow start. Brazil has administered vaccines to only about three percent of its population that's way behind neighboring countries. Like she lay here in brazil. Most of the problem is that boston otto is anti vaccines and many months ago. When he had from different vaccine companies including some that were doing trials here in brazil he kicked the can down the road and signed with astra zeneca but that one provider hasn't been enough now here in sao paulo. The governor signed a deal with the sign of that company to produce its corona vac vaccine in the federal government. Sort of found itself forced to make a deal as well but they've also been all sorts of supply bottlenecks and problems with distribution and real kind of ineffectiveness by on the part of the national health ministry. Which is overseeing this whole effort. It sounds like a fairly bleak picture all around but it's not just a problem for brazil if these new variants in particular are allowed to run rampant. That's true and it's really scary. The longer the disease is left to fester. In in countries like brazil greater chance that new variants will start to emerge that reduced the effectiveness of covid nineteen vaccines elsewhere in the world posing a threat to nations that have already immunized their populations in a lot of these countries. That are still really struggling with the virus. You see their leaders just begging for the rest of the world to send them vaccine so that they can vaccinate people as quick as possible so far. We haven't seen that from bolsonaro he's been really against vaccines but just in the past few weeks. It looks like maybe he's starting to change his tune. He signed a deal with pfizer and he suggested in a recent interview that he himself might get vaccinated. So i guess the hope is relieved. The bolsonaro will understand that vaccinating people is essential to the economic recovery. That he's been prioritizing from the start and that that combined with attention from the rest of the world in getting vaccines to brazil will start to allow brazil to get a handle on something that feels right now like. It's totally out of control very much for your time sarah. Thank you jason

"However what became clear the further. We investigated was that Lula visited that apartment. Once did not have the key into that apartment. Never slept in. The apartment never truly accepted the apartment. He was offered it but it was never clear if he was accepting it or not and based based on the fact that he had visited that apartment even though there was no other evidence that the apartment was really his. They convicted him to do I nine than twelve years in prison. You're there with Lula when he receives that sentence and he tries to turn himself tough and what happens. It was the most dramatic moment of the three years where we filmed. I was actually on my way to Rio from some follows in the airport. Ready to get into the plane when I get a message in my phone like an alert from like the headline of newspaper saying that Lula had been convicted and mortar had ordered his prison. So I stop. I don't enter into the plane. I lose my flight. I start writing to everyone. I discovered that Liz on his way to who though union where he started his career and they eighty so I get a taxi and go there and managed to get into the building my crew meets with the equipment and we start filming and one way. See we're kind of kidnapped It felt like being kidnapped three days inside this building where Lula was kind of in custody because if he left would be in prison so he couldn't leave the union and the entire country. I was looking at the union through. There were helicopters all over filming and from inside we watch from the TV all these helicopter filming the building and there was so much tension because look didn't know For three days he didn't know if he was going to give himself into prison. Or if if you would resist east. And finally he decides to give himself in to abide by the rule of law and he says that to the crowd and the crowd starts crying and when he leaves the building everyone surrounds the building and holds the gate to prevent him from leaving. In that moment. What did you think the future looks like for Brazil with so many people trying to prevent Lula from turning himself in and one half the country supporting the the imprisonment of a former president? It was the culmination of this three years of kind of somehow type civil war between the two sides of society and and their side had one and I now use the sentence in the film. I say use the Warren buffet quote. That says yes. There's class warfare and our class. The rich class is winning. And that's what became clear that moment moment so Lulu was actually running a gun for president after the impeachment of Doma rousseff and he is well ahead in the polls and then his imprisonment imprisonment keeps him from running so correct. Yes so Lula was very well ahead. In the polls he is imprisoned by the judge that oversees car while operation orders his imprisonment and with that he's not allowed to run for president president and both Naidoo who was a congressman that was kind of obscure in Congress and became known known for defending kind of homophobic misogynistic anti-indigenous racist comments becomes a candidate handed it on starts growing a lot because he is charismatic in a way similar but different to Lula and many people that what were going to vote for Lulu decide to vote for both on auto most renowned winds and the first thing he does after he wins is to announce that his his minister of Justice is going to be more precisely the judge that put Lula in prison Petrie. Your film has has been criticized. By the current government yes after the nomination to the Oscars Boleslaw Naidoo said that our film was a fiction and then the reporters asked but have you seen it and he said no but it's crap and his secretary of culture also said that that the film should being the category of fiction and fantasy and the strange thing was that four days after that that same secretary of culture. Plagiarize Gobbles Hitler's Minister of propaganda in a speech and wh and in that speech Hitler's favorite opera is playing in the background. That Secretary of cultures five the next day after the embassy of Israel and Germany ask for his dismissal but it just reveals so much of the DNA a of the government put your. How else has your son been received outside of the government in Brazil how how people received it? It's been wonderful. I mean the. The film was the second most watched documentary on net flicks and two thousand and nineteen which really surpassed all our expectations speculations. And there's like one tweet every few minutes about the film and it has shaped a lot of the conversations and I they have had thousands of messages people say like I'm so sorry. I supported the impeachment and new film made me reflect on how wrong it was. or or how brainwashed I was people that say hadn't been speaking to my best friend for years and after seeing your film. We finally came back together feeling empathy for our different political visions so it has created dialogue between the two political sides that identify with the Division as an inside my own family and with the trauma as well that I exposed in the film political grief.

"You say dreamt less and less what do you mean by that? For example one of the most significant ministers he had was fighting a silver. Who was one of the greatest leaders is that protected the Amazon but as soon as I had to make concessions with the Oligarch Party PM DB he had to give more and more rights to like? Big Farmers monoculture and also. He ended up opting for kind of more capitalist way of thinking being that we did not take sustainability so much into account did huge dams in the Amazon that most of the population was against or all activists were against danced. And he might enough. Hoover left the government and that happened in many sectors like the idealism kept losing for the pragmatic concessions and yet he leaves with as you said. Eighty seven percent approval rating and his successors is almost handpicked. Tell me about her. Yeah and I mean just explain that a little bit was that in many areas that happened but in others the really wonderful things continued to happen like for example More than twenty million people rose out of misery like forty million people entered the middle class. That was so unbelievable like hunger which killed three hundred children per day stopped being an issue because of the social programs Lula and his team were able to do they managed to approve affirmative action and today more than half of the students in public universities are block. I mean that was unheard of. There would be one to black students every university. Now there's more than half so ooh silent revolution also happened. That was really what we had dreamed for. And I think that's part of his eighty seven percent approval rate and Dilma. The his successor was his chief of staff. She was kind of his right hand in his government and he chose her because she was the strong woman woman and also had an amazing past she had been a guerilla fighter she had been in prison for two years brutally tortured but had never run on for office but even with that she won. And that's Dilma rousseff you're speaking of who becomes president after Lula when she's inaugurated rated to do you have a sense of optimism. Then I did. I mean I felt so move that someone with a past that was so similar to my mother's passed actually had reached the the presidency. It felt like a true change of times. Did you grow up hearing stories of torture and imprisonment. No you know in many of my parents friends went through that but they never speak about it. It's kind of the silent trauma that no one mentions and yet in your film you introduce your mother to Dilma Elma. I do when Doma was elected. My mother made a list of twenty things they had in common. They studied in the same school. They were born in in the same city that were imprisoned in the same prison and I really wanted for these two women to meet. I knew something would come out of that encounter and after years of already trying to interview Duma finally managing to interview Dilma. I then brought my mother to meet her and that was quite moving in that meeting almost says to my mother that she actually never wanted to be president. It was not her desire. It was something that Lula made happen but not really her choice. Why did she not want to? Because she's like the most efficient chief of staff like behind the curtains kind of actor good at managing but doesn't love the camera doesn't like to be filmed at all doesn't like back to do. Small talk doesn't like to please people and that is like ninety percent. I think of the president's job which she didn't like to do. When did you begin to sense that her approval rating was slipping in two thousand thirteen? So she's elected in two thousand ten takes office in two thousand eleven and for the first two years of her mandate she has like the highest approval rate than any other president present history and then in June two thousand thirteen these protests explode kind of out of nowhere a little bit against a rise of twenty cents and the bus fare in a few weeks these protests that had begun for progressive reasons actually are kind of hijacked by a new far far right that is born out of social media precisely during those weeks and the National Brazilian media also manages to portrayed for trade these protests as if they were against the government and in less than three weeks our approval rate goes from like seventy percent to thirty percent so she has a forty percent drop in her approval rate because of protests that weren't even against to begin with what were those protests. What did they feel? I can the streets. Did you feel them walk inch day. where the in each city were they particular cities they were all over the country? I mean most massively in some pollen real but it was our first protests protests that were organized and led by social media so suddenly they could happen at the same time in the entire country. I mean in the eighties would take much much longer. You know and everyone was for the first time putting their picture in the streets with a plaque written things and like it became this social media phenomenon but they were very chaotic. Like people were protesting all different types of things at the same time. They were protesting for no World World Cup for no Olympics for more health for more education against the media and because of that chaos it was easy for the far right to start to hijack the narrative and that's what they started to do in the beginning of two thousand and thirteen and continued doing until the election of Zonada because also the left had been in power for thirteen years. It was easy for the far right to show themselves as the real revolution. Dilma rousseff also angers the bankers. What happens then yes so you'd just before these protests Doma had done a move that is a hard moved of to do in Brazil we have one of the highest interest rates in the world? And that's how many of the people make money there and she reduced the interest rates and started to piss off the elite in a way that Lulu had never done. Lula was always quite managed to please. Both the working class and the elite and Doma starts to be more confrontational with the Brazilian elite and slowly that starts to lead into a revolt against her by that elite.

"AM corbusier to those am Covari off found your lost Mohammed. In which of course reported as a fighter fistfight broke out like it was the worst both sizing I've seen in a while and also how your role as like how fatherhood has changed or not changed the way you experience politics and your own personal decisions breath especially in terms of the danger in living in Brazil. Well it's interesting. I think one of the things people don't realize about Boston are like when they constantly compare him to trump or to like before eight leaders of Western Europe like Marine Le Pen or Nigel Garage. Or those kind of people is. He's actually much different in a lot of different ways. He's really throwback to this this Cold War right wing authoritarian who's obsessed with murdering communists torturing them yeah but at torturing them and then murdering ordering them and he's also a religious fanatic and anti LGBT hatred is a central part of His political success. Because Brazil's a very religious country. It's the largest Catholic country in the world but it's much more fanatic. Call call in a religious sense because of the growing evangelical movement that has really taken over large swath of Brazilian politics and Bolsonaro Oros success in demagoguing. LGBT equality he you know basically convinced a large percentage of the population population that public schools are now geared toward teaching children about homosexuality in order to convert them so that that gay teachers can fuck their young children. which is you know like playing with the most dangerous primal fear that people have and one one of the reasons why the reporting that I did was so dangerous is because my husband in January of Twenty nineteen and kind of took center stage the only LGBT member of the Brazilian Congress in the history of the Congress had been elected? who was a dedicated? Any of the Bolsonaro family who had spit on them who had been threatened by them. fled the country out of fear of his own life and David because he ran for Congress and became the alternate autumn by law. Took that seat so it was like one. LGBT member of Congress fled lead the country in fear of his own life. Boston are that day posted. Great Day celebrating the fact that he fled and then David took his seat elevated us us as a gay couple into this like really bright spotlight at exactly the moment that Bolsonaro assumed the presidency and his spawns the sons. It's like the guy. Saddam Hussein sons like elevated themselves greatly in their own power like one got elected to the Senate the other one got the biggest vegas vote in the history of the Congress of the Bolsonaro family assumed great power and David and I became probably the most visible. LGBT couple even before the supporting began and then once we started publishing these leaked conversations so much of the attacks were anti gay in nature and and not just anti gay. But you know dragging our kids into the spotlight and it's interesting that you mentioned Lake my new experience of being a father. We adopted two young among boys in two thousand seventeen when Boston. Ro threatened to imprison me explicitly. He also in the same press conference claim that David and I had married fraudulently and adopted two Brazilian boys and he emphasized boys fraudulently in order for me to. Oh boy being deported because under deportation law. If you're married to a Brazilian citizen or you've adopted or the parent of two Brazilian children. You can't be deported. So we drag our family coming into it said our family was essentially a fraud. He called his. Yeah and then the right wing hose to attack me physically the reason then why. That was such a tense interview was because six weeks before I appeared on that right wing radio program. which by the way you you know I also do that? In Brazil. It's very popular right wing radio and Youtube TV program. I appear on their six weeks earlier. That pro bolsonaro journalists. LS Had gone on his own program and said that a judge should investigate whether David and I are properly caring for children essentially saying that. There's a possibility that our children should be taken away from us. Put back into the orphanage from which we adopted them and one of the reasons why I was so animated in so angry sitting next to him was because this paternal instincts that I honestly didn't know that I add kicked in and it was like I was sitting next to the person who was essentially calling for our children to be taken away from US and return turn to an orphanage and when I called him a coward for using our children that way and for refusing to say the same thing about his co workers or his bosses were both couples. Apple's you know the the people in the in the couple both work on whether they should have their children taken away out of Vino concerned that they're not properly caring for their children. The only said about us that's physically assaulted me and it wasn't just that he physically assaulted me but Boston. Our sons his girl. Benny members of his party went on twitter and celebrated the fact that I was slapped in the face. They said next time it should be done with the close fast or the violence should be worse. So there's a lot of political Michael Violence in the air in Brazil. It's a very dangerous political movement and there's no one that would dispute that the reporting did was by far the biggest threat to that government in two thousand nineteen and I became the public face of it along with David and the fact that we weren't openly aren't openly. LGBT couple with two children kind of a living embodiment Lahti Mint of the sort of the proof that their attempt to stigmatizing demonize what it means to live and lgbt life trying to convince LGBTQ to us that their futures are going to be filled with solitude in disease and unhappiness. We're kind of proof that that's why it just stimulated so much more hatred and made it more more primal and violent. I haven't left my house since June without armed guards in an armored vehicle nor his David we had to drastically enhance the security measures our own house. Our kids are very aware of that. It radically changed our lives in every conceivable way. But that's what what it means to do. Actual resistance against the fascist government. How do your kids have you ever have you heard them like describing you and David's roles and describing the political situation? Have you ever heard them doing that or do they talk about it with you like Do you have any sense of how they understand what's happening. Yeah I mean you know what's amazing. Kids who grow up without parents are did develop faculties and skills that I never had when I was their age because I relied on my mother and father to protect me into monitor the world for dangers in to teach me about what was going on kids. Did you grow up without parents have to develop. It's kind of like you know someone's blind they're hearing becomes enhance. Obviously it's a tragic thing for kids to grow up without parents errands but there is this kind of I. Don't WANNA call it a benefit but like a result they develop capacities that other kids. Don't have and so. Our kids are like incredibly sleep perceptive and they just fit so perfectly into our lives. They're very charismatic. They're very charming. They're very smart. Yeah they like they were a little weary of the some of the dogs at first but they even loved the dogs now so yeah. They like they're really proud of us. They like some kids in school. Have made you know food pejorative comments occasionally about us and they like almost got into fights over it and we talked to them about how you can like debate with words but not with fast. They're very aware yeah. They're very aware of all of that. One thing I wanted to ask you about you're going through something that very few journalists the United States ever have to experience the sort of immediate the least the ones who work entirely within the country. What do you think living overseas in that kind of environment has done in terms of your perspective perspective on reporting on the United States? Do you think it's enhanced it in a way or what. What do you think the experience of living abroad is done for you? Yeah I think it's been incredibly beneficial official from my work as a journalist like being you know having distance between New York and Washington and then me thousands of miles away for one thing. It means that I'm not constantly interacting with people who are immersed in elite political on journalistic culture. So I'm not constantly connected to it. We're all influenced by the people. We talked to the people who are around us and so kind of having this distance stints from it. I think has enabled me to have some greater independence. It also gives you a different perspective. I mean I remember after living in Brazil for two or three years I just woke up one day. I don't know why this insight came to me but I just realized it seems kind of been all but at the time. It seemed like an epiphany I realized there's never a moment in Brazilian political discourse and Brazil's a big country. It's the fifth most populous country on the planet. It has twenty million people people just a few less than the. US has it's comparable in geographical size to the US it has tons of oil reserves its geostrategic importance. It's the most influential fluential country on the continent and yet there's never a moment where there's any discussion of like which countries should we bomb like. Should we go to war with this country. Should we drop bombs on this country. Should we send and so when you kind of remove yourself from the US you start to realize that certain things that are just taken for granted chanted as normal in the US are actually incredibly abnormal.

"bolsonaro" Discussed on Useful Idiots with Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper

"AM corbusier to those am Covari off found your lost Mohammed. In which of course reported as a fighter fistfight broke out like it was the worst both sizing I've seen in a while and also how your role as like how fatherhood has changed or not changed the way you experience politics and your own personal decisions breath especially in terms of the danger in living in Brazil. Well it's interesting. I think one of the things people don't realize about Boston are like when they constantly compare him to trump or to like before eight leaders of Western Europe like Marine Le Pen or Nigel Garage. Or those kind of people is. He's actually much different in a lot of different ways. He's really throwback to this this Cold War right wing authoritarian who's obsessed with murdering communists torturing them yeah but at torturing them and then murdering ordering them and he's also a religious fanatic and anti LGBT hatred is a central part of His political success. Because Brazil's a very religious country. It's the largest Catholic country in the world but it's much more fanatic. Call call in a religious sense because of the growing evangelical movement that has really taken over large swath of Brazilian politics and Bolsonaro Oros success in demagoguing. LGBT equality he you know basically convinced a large percentage of the population population that public schools are now geared toward teaching children about homosexuality in order to convert them so that that gay teachers can fuck their young children. which is you know like playing with the most dangerous primal fear that people have and one one of the reasons why the reporting that I did was so dangerous is because my husband in January of Twenty nineteen and kind of took center stage the only LGBT member of the Brazilian Congress in the history of the Congress had been elected? who was a dedicated? Any of the Bolsonaro family who had spit on them who had been threatened by them. fled the country out of fear of his own life and David because he ran for Congress and became the alternate autumn by law. Took that seat so it was like one. LGBT member of Congress fled lead the country in fear of his own life. Boston are that day posted. Great Day celebrating the fact that he fled and then David took his seat elevated us us as a gay couple into this like really bright spotlight at exactly the moment that Bolsonaro assumed the presidency and his spawns the sons. It's like the guy. Saddam Hussein sons like elevated themselves greatly in their own power like one got elected to the Senate the other one got the biggest vegas vote in the history of the Congress of the Bolsonaro family assumed great power and David and I became probably the most visible. LGBT couple even before the supporting began and then once we started publishing these leaked conversations so much of the attacks were anti gay in nature and and not just anti gay. But you know dragging our kids into the spotlight and it's interesting that you mentioned Lake my new experience of being a father. We adopted two young among boys in two thousand seventeen when Boston. Ro threatened to imprison me explicitly. He also in the same press conference claim that David and I had married fraudulently and adopted two Brazilian boys and he emphasized boys fraudulently in order for me to. Oh boy being deported because under deportation law. If you're married to a Brazilian citizen or you've adopted or the parent of two Brazilian children. You can't be deported. So we drag our family coming into it said our family was essentially a fraud. He called his. Yeah and then the right wing hose to attack me physically the reason then why. That was such a tense interview was because six weeks before I appeared on that right wing radio program. which by the way you you know I also do that? In Brazil. It's very popular right wing radio and Youtube TV program. I appear on their six weeks earlier. That pro bolsonaro journalists. LS Had gone on his own program and said that a judge should investigate whether David and I are properly caring for children essentially saying that. There's a possibility that our children should be taken away from us. Put back into the orphanage from which we adopted them and one of the reasons why I was so animated in so angry sitting next to him was because this paternal instincts that I honestly didn't know that I add kicked in and it was like I was sitting next to the person who was essentially calling for our children to be taken away from US and return turn to an orphanage and when I called him a coward for using our children that way and for refusing to say the same thing about his co workers or his bosses were both couples. Apple's you know the the people in the in the couple both work on whether they should have their children taken away out of Vino concerned that they're not properly caring for their children. The only said about us that's physically assaulted me and it wasn't just that he physically assaulted me but Boston. Our sons his girl. Benny members of his party went on twitter and celebrated the fact that I was slapped in the face. They said next time it should be done with the close fast or the violence should be worse. So there's a lot of political Michael Violence in the air in Brazil. It's a very dangerous political movement and there's no one that would dispute that the reporting did was by far the biggest threat to that government in two thousand nineteen and I became the public face of it along with David and the fact that we weren't openly aren't openly. LGBT couple with two children kind of a living embodiment Lahti Mint of the sort of the proof that their attempt to stigmatizing demonize what it means to live and lgbt life trying to convince LGBTQ to us that their futures are going to be filled with solitude in disease and unhappiness. We're kind of proof that that's why it just stimulated so much more hatred and made it more more primal and violent. I haven't left my house since June without armed guards in an armored vehicle nor his David we had to drastically enhance the security measures our own house. Our kids are very aware of that. It radically changed our lives in every conceivable way. But that's what what it means to do. Actual resistance against the fascist government. How do your kids have you ever have you heard them like describing you and David's roles and describing the political situation? Have you ever heard them doing that or do they talk about it with you like Do you have any sense of how they understand what's happening. Yeah I mean you know what's amazing. Kids who grow up without parents are did develop faculties and skills that I never had when I was their age because I relied on my mother and father to protect me into monitor the world for dangers in to teach me about what was going on kids. Did you grow up without parents have to develop. It's kind of like you know someone's blind they're hearing becomes enhance. Obviously it's a tragic thing for kids to grow up without parents errands but there is this kind of I. Don't WANNA call it a benefit but like a result they develop capacities that other kids. Don't have and so. Our kids are like incredibly sleep perceptive and they just fit so perfectly into our lives. They're very charismatic. They're very charming. They're very smart. Yeah they like they were a little weary of the some of the dogs at first but they even loved the dogs now so yeah. They like they're really proud of us. They like some kids in school. Have made you know food pejorative comments occasionally about us and they like almost got into fights over it and we talked to them about how you can like debate with words but not with fast. They're very aware yeah. They're very aware of all of that. One thing I wanted to ask you about you're going through something that very few journalists the United States ever have to experience the sort of immediate the least the ones who work entirely within the country. What do you think living overseas in that kind of environment has done in terms of your perspective perspective on reporting on the United States? Do you think it's enhanced it in a way or what. What do you think the experience of living abroad is done for you? Yeah I think it's been incredibly beneficial official from my work as a journalist like being you know having distance between New York and Washington and then me thousands of miles away for one thing. It means that I'm not constantly interacting with people who are immersed in elite political on journalistic culture. So I'm not constantly connected to it. We're all influenced by the people. We talked to the people who are around us and so kind of having this distance stints from it. I think has enabled me to have some greater independence. It also gives you a different perspective. I mean I remember after living in Brazil for two or three years I just woke up one day. I don't know why this insight came to me but I just realized it seems kind of been all but at the time. It seemed like an epiphany I realized there's never a moment in Brazilian political discourse and Brazil's a big country. It's the fifth most populous country on the planet. It has twenty million people people just a few less than the. US has it's comparable in geographical size to the US it has tons of oil reserves its geostrategic importance. It's the most influential fluential country on the continent and yet there's never a moment where there's any discussion of like which countries should we bomb like. Should we go to war with this country. Should we drop bombs on this country. Should we send and so when you kind of remove yourself from the US you start to realize that certain things that are just taken for granted chanted as normal in the US are actually incredibly abnormal. Really kind of rogue in the fat in the sense that almost nobody else does it. I think that also the way I built my journalism career starting my own blog and then always negotiating for the right to just not be edited. The fact that I have my own independent following that gives me kind of leverage in platform has just kind of contributed to my ability to be independent and not have to you know. Please season appease the people who will power in the world of journalism fantastic you paid in rubles by the way what. What's what's your favorite part of the Russian assets benefit package?

"Yeah. I mean, you find people who think that both in our can be contained and they point to Trump. They say, look, I mean, you had this guy who, you know, elites were scared of and who people warned about being a fascist and antidemocratic, and these people say look things haven't turned out so badly in the United States. I don't personally believe that most Brazilians share his views on on LGBT people. For example. I mean Brazil in many respects remains a quite progressive place. But I do think that he captured people's anger with their politicians. And again, the feeling that they have been neglected and sold out by their politicians. Brazil has some of the highest taxes in all of Latin America, it's an incredibly high tax load and people get very little in return. Is a country where many people are most people if they could pay for private schools and drive on private roads. And there's just this enormous frustration with the political class that the promises that they made during the two thousands. When things seem to be going really well for Brazil have now fallen short. Yeah. I was there in Brazil a couple of weeks ago during the week when his support boomed in the course of one week it went from about twenty eight percent of voters to the forty six percent that he won in the first round on October seventh and that really happened in the course of about seven to ten days, and you could feel it being in Sao Paulo and Rio you could feel people deciding that he was the one not only because they decided that they'd had enough with the political class in Brasilia. But also because they thought that he was the strongest figure to get rid of the. Workers party. And and diffuse the quote unquote threat of them coming back into power. What am I religious voters evangelical Catholics? Another critical part of the Bolsonaro story is the rise of evangelical 's this Brazil generation ago was overwhelmingly Catholic and now if I'm not mistaken about a third of the country is evangelical and they have wholeheartedly embraced Bolsonaro really since the beginning. Even though it's it's worth noting both narrow himself is Catholic. But for them they see values that they can get behind. They see his, you know, the fact that he talks about God, the fact that he wants to support Israel. They see all of these things is signs of a kindred spirit. And so they've been one of the most enthusiastic demographics in terms of their support. If he wins on October twenty eighth how will it change Brazil? What will happen right away? My personal belief is that if both in our is elected with a strong mandate, which all the polls indicate he will be the he will have tremendous power to mold the country in his image. He'll have a a fairly conservative congress hill. Also. And this was a surprise for a lot of us his block of supporters in congress will also be quite strong. And so, you know, I think that on the security side he will order the armed forces and the police to go out and basically bust some heads. There are people comparing what he plans to do with what regret deteriora- has done in the Philippines. It's worth noting that Brazil is already a country where the police kill more than five thousand people every year. It's I think completely probable that. That number will increase at least in the short term under. Bolsonaro precisely because of what he has said he wants police to be able to do we've already seen an increase in killings and violence involving various minority groups in Brazil, political violence, also, and it's reasonable to think that that will increase in the short term. But again, the poll show, this is what most Brazilians want on the economy both in our has said that he will pass a pension reform, which virtually every economist agrees is necessary in order to rebalance the country's books, which are severely out of whack at the moment..

"Experts from around the world and some Oppenheimer funds. Most successful insiders to discuss the trends. There are shaping the global economy because globalization is making our world smaller and more connected than ever before a typical American consumer can use electronic from Asia where clothing made in Europe entering Colombian coffee, and yet many Americans only invest in companies based in the United States. There's a world filled with opportunity. That's what mega trends is about. Subscribe to. Mega-trends wherever you find your podcasts. It's interesting that there hasn't been or at least it doesn't seem to be a sort of lapenne effect by which you mean, a rallying by disparate parts of the left and centre against him, unless I'm wrong has there been a movement to say, this doesn't represent the democratic trajectory Brazil has been on since the dictatorship or does Brazil, not you know, coalesce in that way. There has been an attempt to put together a so-called democratic coalition of moderates in order to oppose Bolsonaro and the runoff, but it hasn't gone anywhere. And there's two reasons one is that the candidate who made it into the runoff against Bolsonaro Fernando dodgy of the Workers Party has his own baggage. And it's not even really his baggage. It's the party's baggage. This is the leftist party that governed Brazil from twenty three to twenty sixteen and has it's sort of his. Soreq leader, Louis, nausea, Lula da Silva in jail right now on corruption charges. It is a party that generally stuck to the rules of institutional democracy during its time in power, but also lead the country into its biggest recession ever, and you know, has some question marks when it comes to its own commitment to democracy. One. Specific example, is that Haddad has talked about the idea of seeking a re balancing of the three branches of government, if he's elected and most people interpret that as a sign or gesture that they would kind of go after the judicial sector if he gets elected believing that they've accumulated too much power. And that's why Lula's in jail. And so, you know, some of the people who might otherwise join a Democratic Front look askance at the Workers Party and had died and ask themselves are they really committed to democracy. The second problem that had died. And the pro-democracy crowd has had in Brazil is that democracy itself has sadly gained a bad name. The Pew Research Center does an annual poll where they asked people how they feel about institutional Representative democracy, and in the latest poll just eight percent of Brazilian said they thought it was very good that was the lowest of all thirty eight countries surveyed, and you know, again, unfortunately, democracy for many Brazilians as become a synonym of chaos of leniency for criminals, and again, that's why both in our owes outsider status has been so appealing to so many people because resilience kind of collectively threw up their hands and said everything that is there and resilient is rotten. And we need somebody new for a longtime during the campaign really until these last few weeks Bolsonaro support was very concentrated in the most educated most fluent members of. Brazilian society who tended to be the Munns who worry the most about crime. And who were the most offended by the corruption scandals of recent years, but over these last two months or so his support both in our support has expanded beyond that original bass and has grown to included a vast constellation of people in Brazil who are both worried about their own personal security, and also and this is critical oppose the return of the Workers Party, the leftist party that governed Brazil for thirteen years. I mean, what you find is is an, you know, you saw this in the US election to, but but people who are holding their nose and voting for both in our despite his rhetoric despite some of his more extreme positions because he represents in their mind, the lesser of two evils. They would rather roll the dice with somebody like Bolsonaro than face a return to the policies that that. Ended in the economic collapse and one of the biggest corruption scandals ever detected anywhere, even despite his rhetoric..

"And I've also observed him quite a lot over these last two years as it became clear that he was adopting some of Donald Trump's tactics in a country, where of course, the problems have been much worse than they ever were in the United States. And so the message of drain the swamp basically had tons of appeal one thing I'll say about gyro Bolsonaro is that he knows how to read a room, which is to say that he is capable of modulating his message, depending on whether he's speaking to a rally of true believers or whether he's speaking in a debate or whether he's speaking to a group of business leaders as he did here in New York, and one example of this was when he was asked about one of his stronger, more offensive comments. He his statement that he wouldn't you know, he fellow legislator didn't deserve to be raped by him. He showed some contrition. The kind of looked down. And he said, I sometimes lose my way with words. And and I'm sorry. This was misleading because at the same time Bolsonaro has spent the last several years in front of other audiences bragging about that comment, and repeating it. But it shows you that he's clever in a way. I mean, I do believe he's he's actually quite smart an ocean that many in the Brazilian elite would laugh at, but he you know, he's gotten to this point with no real funding to speak of no corporate support. No party. Really? It's then his ability to kind of read the moment and say things that will appeal to different constituencies in Brazil that has put him on the cusp of the presidency. What's it like to be edibles in our rally violent or people aggressive are they chanting? What happens the tone of the Bolsonaro rallies has generally been patriotic? Confrontational and anti establishment. But inclusive. They're happy. And in some ways, that's reflective of Brazil. Right. I mean, Brazilian rallies almost always have kind of a party feel to them. But it's also, you know, perhaps Bolsonaro rallies more than most. And he's been able to kind of enshrouded himself in the colors of the Brazilian flag. And bring a message of change and optimism at a really miserable time in the country's history. At a time when wages have been falling and unemployment is upwards of thirteen percent and people feel like they've been waiting forever now for an economic recovery, and it just hasn't materialized, and what he's been able to do is convince people that there are easy solutions to these problems. Hey will fix the economy by putting all these politicians in jail. Hey will fix crime by letting all of you law-abiding citizens have a gun and again, the wisdom of these policies. Can be deeply questioned. But at least for the moment, the Brazilian body, politic appears to have bought into a lot of these ideas. He's often called the Brazilian Trump. Is that fair is not a good comparison. I think it is fair in a lot of ways because he has tapped into that same anti establishment vibe. He has also appealed to nostalgia. Just as Donald Trump's make America. Great again slogan. Appeals to a certain kind of nostalgia for the nineteen fifties in the United States both in our has openly touted this military dictatorship as a golden era in Brazilian history. As a matter of fact, he is even this is classic case of gas lighting. He has shed doubt on whether it was even a dictatorship at all. Maybe in his says it was legitimately elected. And you know, the nostalgia for that period stems from the belief held by some Brazilians that it was a tie. Time when politicians were less corrupt and when crime was a lot lower. Do you think his primary appeal and his crime or corruption or combination of the two Bolsonaro primary? Appeal is his message of law and order, and he has cleverly pared rhetoric against both corruption and street crime under that umbrella, and he has credibly I might add touted himself as one of the cleanest politicians and Brazil, and as an aside here. It is generally agreed is record is quite clean. When you consider that most other national politicians have been implicated in one scandal or another in recent years, both in our can credibly claim to being relatively untainted by that he has convinced people that he'd be a champion of clean government as well.

"Carlos covers extremism for reveal from the center for investigative reporting. He's base in Brazil where there is another big story today the election of far right candidate Geijer Bolsonaro as president more on that later. I I will how the Pittsburgh synagogue attack fits in with his reporting on extremism in America. Obviously, it's a particularly violent episode. I mean, we do see antisemitism really ramping up over the last couple of. Years really following the election of President Donald Trump, you see all flameouts of anti semitism on social media on on right wing, social media. But also mainstream social media like Facebook and Twitter. And so, you know, it's not particularly surprising. I mean, this isn't the first guy to walk into a synagogue old a Jewish center and start shooting people in sadly, I don't think that he'll be the lost. But the scale of this attack was worse than anything we've seen at least in recent is I know it can be difficult to connect violence to political rhetoric but looking at events like the mail bombs last week in the synagogue shooting to what extent can you make that link because we gotta remember Dylann roof went into a Charleston, South Carolina church and killed people there before the election of Trump. Yeah, I don't find it difficult to make that link at all. I mean, you've got President Donald Trump re tweeting and spreading completely false anti semitic theories about George Soros, the on Garin Jewish multi-billion. Saying that he's funding everything from the caravan of migrants who's making their way to the sudden bull the two protesters and that trickles down that trickles down. We see for example, that Pittsburgh through to on his gab social meteoric count in the days leading up to the shooting was posting about George Soros, Trump mega fan sent to pipe bomb allegedly to George Soros is home. So I think there are clear connections. And I think the media just needs to stop don't sing around this subject and just lay it out. Very clearly the president is spreading militias rumors, and that's trickling down to his fan base and people are going out and killing people. It's as simple as that. So you mentioned the social media side gab, and we've heard a lot about it since the shooting in Pittsburgh, tell us more about gab. What do you know that basically an old right Twitter? I mean, that's the way to think about them. Now, they're stick is that they're all about free speech in the reality is the collection of Neo Nazis. Racists. Antisemites people who like to get on and spread mostly fake nonsense about Jews about people of color. And I mean, I think most people would be absolutely a polled by most of the content on there. I mean, they've been shut down but want the people who go to gab won't. They just go somewhere else to find a like minded community. Yeah. This is a tricky debate has been going on for some time. Now, you know to what extent is it? If a catious too deep platform, these guys to shutdown that places of congregation, but I mean, I kind of think that that misses the point. I mean, all timidly the people who host gab their private company run by individuals like you and me, and if they don't want to host people who are spreading hateful stuff than that. Steph perogative, these guys are not being sensitive. It's not as if a government body or entity is coming in and saying, hey, you guys can't spread your message. They'll find someone else to host them. I think we just have to acknowledge that every time a Republican congressman re tweet. It's a conspiracy theory of they make these people feel as if that legitimate is if what they're saying is true. And that something that five years ago didn't really exist. You know, these people lived on the fringes, and we're treated as out costs and today that being legitimised by mainstream politicians, and in some cases by the president himself will let's turn to Brazil. Now. I mean,.

And he's been leading throughout the two rounds has actually decreased by six percentage points since mid October two fifty six percent, but he still has a significant twelve points. Eva his left-wing rival say that almost looks like a crease victory now where we're only really a day way. Well, we'll get to that shortly. But I think before we talk about where we are. We should reflect somewhat on on how we got here. Remind us if he would have just how strange this campaign has been well, I we had the longtime front runner in the two times former president of Brazil Lula he was disqualified from the race just days before the deadline for candidates to present themselves in August. And he's serving a twelve year presence in prison sentence for money laundering, and he was deemed ineligible to run. And at the time. He was polling thirty percent of votes, which was a significant majority his party then had to scramble to find a replacement who boss Nari will now face as you mentioned in the second round. Then Boston are himself. He was polling. At the time behind Lula was stabbed to death at a raucous campaign rally in September when campaigning sort of really kicked off and that left him hospitalized for three weeks and unable to take to the streets in traditional campaign rallies or repair in televised debates, which is a first Brazil. And then as recently as last weekend, we had a fake news spot where both scenarios campaign was accused of creating a criminal network to spread fake news about his work party rival the electoral call, however said that the volume false information wasn't alarming, and it's mostly on an interpersonal level that it wouldn't be worrisome. And then even today we had Steve Bannon he goes involved. So it's been quite a race. Indeed. It has how on earth was Steve Bannon able to insert himself into this. What has his contribution bean earlier this year picture circulated actually posted by Bolsonaro son, Eduardo of meeting van in the US Bolsonaro later denied that he knew. Thing about the meeting and then today. Yes, bounden he was in charge of the Trump campaign. So that he was a just a supporter of scenario. He said, I'm here happily endorsing captain Bolsonaro. He I think it was he told BBC Brazil, but he denied any official role in the campaign. He can indeed picked them as you correctly reminded us. There was that because well of the many bizarre incidents in this election. Probably the weirdest one walls, the attempted murder object Bolsonaro that was no small incident. He was extremely seriously injured he was in hospital as you also pointed out for a long time since he returned campaign. What have we been able to tell for sure about his state of health? Well, it doesn't seem as well as he doesn't seem as well as one might hope that this stage. He hasn't really appeared publicly. He hasn't taken part in any televised debate. Some people are saying that that's part of a sort of a campaign strategy, but Brazil actually has a history of vice presidents assuming office current president. Tim is a case in point. Who took over when Dilma Rousseff was impeach. We've also had numerous cases of candidates than becoming extreme beyond. Well, so he is still complaining from his home in Rio, and there are conflicting accounts of when his next major operation will take place some say is the end of November others the same January..

"I'm employer who's pulling things at doing things that they shouldn't be doing. But because of power and influence is able to get away with it. It kind of the perfect, and it's kind of the perfect at test ground. I see I guess to see what is what society kind of values. Protecting more. Is it the reputation of the accused in this way, where NDA's can be applied to newspapers that were never party to them. Or is it getting this out in the public space? And so there's like an extra level in the UK of determining how much of a national or international conversation. I guess this point all of this is going to be in terms of does one wrong done. Affect an entire society. And how should be sorted out? Right now here in the US, we are understandably focused on the midterm elections Brazilians are focused on a presidential election. They hit the polls on Sunday to choose between two radically different candidates in the second round of voting for non Doha. Dodd is on the left. Gyro scenario is on the right and Bolsonaro holds a lead in most polls, many expect him to win the election. Joining us now from Sao Paulo is Sarah Meslin who's Brazil correspondent for the economist. Sarah, welcome to one A. Grant her having me remind us about gyro Bolsonaro. He's been pretty controversial explain to us. Why? Well, what has been a congressman for her promo duct tape now and has really become famous lasts for any particular letters that that her more for as sort of three of French has common event and minorities and earn and and and that has given her this provocative reputation that a lot of people compare him to come. But in other ways. Very much of the staffing. Thank for acreage. So I it's sort of interesting. Say an outsider here on around sixty percent of Brazilians are kind of hoping shakes up and at the country back on track. So is that why he's so popular? I mean, you know, the Brazil has had a number of issues kind of cascading issues with corruption over the years is it just kind of his outsider status has clips any social misgivings. There may be about him..
