The president of the United States, Donald Trump, "is the Dalai Lama before Bolsonaro," he said today at the IAPA assembly, which is being held in the Argentine city of Salta, the president of the Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism, Daniel Bramatti.
Bramatti participated in a panel of the IAPA assembly on the evolution of fraud in the electoral processes, which also involved the Argentine journalist Carlos Pagni, who said that what happens in the US and Brazil "is the policy governed by negativity "
The Brazilian journalist said he had information that if the Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro did not surpass the first electoral round "they were going to denounce a fraud"
"What can be expected from the Bolsonaro phenomenon?" Bramatti asked, at the same time showing his concern because this candidate, former captain of the Brazilian army, "comes with threats to the important media."
On this issue, Pagni recalled that there are populist phenomena "that are based on the aggression to the media" and stressed that "democracy is based on information transparency."
"Our industry demands more and more capital, more powerful investments and the return on investment is the capacity that the media has, one of the resignations of our work, is to sell it in the advertising market," reflected Carlos Pagni.
On the Argentine situation, he said that "we now enter a great recession that we do not know how long it will last, and there are two unknowns: how much will the recession affect the ruling alliance and what tensions will it generate between Macri and his allies?"
"And more interesting," he added, "if this recession is enough for Peronism to resolve its crisis."
