Good News: A Major Corruption Scandal Hits Brazil
show comments
  • The case has not been ignored just because it hasn’t reached the Supreme Court yet. Nor will reaching the Supreme Court suddenly change its interest.

    The idea that the outcome of this case will change Brazil is wishful thinking. And Brazil’s democracy is doing alright, corruption notwithstanding. It is not completely wrong, but I’d give it a C minus.

    Sincerely, this post is not really about Brazil; it is about the WSJ’s coverage of Brazil.

  • In the comment above I meant to say I’d give the post a C minus, not because it is completely wrong, but because it misses the target. And it does so by relying on US mainstream media, which has a notoriously poor and tone-deaf coverage of Brazil.

    Dear Mr. pait. This website is an echo chamber for WSJ and related right wing media in the US

  • Dear Don #3, the people who write in this blog have a lot to offer but I fear that occasionally they fall into the trap you have described.
