"In June, Dilma Rousseff gave a 2 hour interview to the Guardian in which she described how Lula’s prosecution was “phase 2” of the Coup which removed her, and that it would open the door for Neofascist Jair Bolsonaro. The Guardian did not publish it." brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
Based on its record with Iraq, Libya and Yugoslavia, it is entirely reasonable to expect that the Guardian will attempt to justify US/NATO Military action against Venezuela, should the situation escalate. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
The @guardian and its Latin America staff are unsurprisingly banging the drum for Trump's Venezuelan Coup.
The @guardian are now regularly quoting personnel from @ascoa, an organisation created to interfere in Latin American politics, which was directly involved in Coups such as Brazil's in 1964 and Chile's in 1973 and now supports Venezuela regime change. brasilwire.com/boycott-americ…
"By inviting Chevron/ExxonMobil-bankrolled pundits, who had closed door meetings with Bolsonaro and are close to his Finance and Justice ministers, from an organisation actually involved in Chile's 1973 Coup, what are we to conclude about the @guardian?" brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
The ridiculous manner in which @guardian reported Brazil's 2016 Coup should be remembered when evaluating its coverage elsewhere in Latin America. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
"You can smell the change"... The intensity of propaganda @guardian is now publishing exceeds anything in the newspaper's modern history. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
The @guardian on January 9 2002: "We must attack Iraq and free its people." theguardian.com/world/2002/jan…
Guardian/Observer on March 16 2016: "Rousseff’s duty is plain: if she cannot restore calm, she must call new elections – or step aside." brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
"Comment is free": Guardian staff are now blocking critics of its pro-regime change stance on Venezuela. They did the same to critics of their pro-regime change stance on Brazil. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
Election year in Bolivia, and like clockwork the @Guardian turns its guns on Evo Morales. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
Bolsonaro shocked Brazil by visiting CIA HQ with US-trained Judge & Justice Minister Moro, who by jailing Lula delivered the Presidency to a neofascist. Guardian have published 3 articles on his US trip - NONE mention the CIA visit. brasilwire.com/in-plain-sight… brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
Peak @Guardian: Publishes piece on revisionism of Brazil's 1964 coup, whilst pretending that the US wasn't involved.
(The first US Government admissions of involvement came in the late 70s). brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
Is the @Guardian Latin America editor @tomphillipsin similarly "amazed" that Bolsonaro and his justice minister visited the CIA? Or that the US was behind the 1964 coup that Bolsonaro will commemorate? Because neither are mentioned in his newspaper. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
The @guardian is now intentionally censoring any reference to U.S. involvement in Brazil, even that which occurred 55 years ago. brasilwire.com/guardian-accus…
The @guardian reverts to script with the 4th letter from Brazil's Ambassador to the UK that it has published since the 2016 coup. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
When challenged on why the US DoJ's role in Lula's case had not been reported, a Guardian writer argued that the "public wouldn’t be interested". Throughout Lula’s prosecution, his defence team held regular press conferences - the @guardian never attended. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
Bad faith, lockstep reaction to first interview of political prisoner Lula da Silva, from Big Oil Lobby @ascoa's @BrazilBrian and Lat Am editor of "progressive" newspaper @Guardian @tomphillipsin, who now frequently quote eachother. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
The Guardian amplifying far-right demonstrations in Brazil whilst they downplay the enormous #15M and #30M mobilisations in defence of public education, should surprise nobody. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
In March 2016 a Guardian/Observer editorial suggested Dilma should resign, then called Michel Temer "The man who could fix Brazil". A writer contacted Brasil Wire privately to insist neither he nor editor Jonathan Watts knew who was writing this material. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
From Danilo Gentili to “rightwing rappers”, the @guardian’s @tomphillipsin’s odd, counter-intuitive alignment with Latin America’s far-right should deeply trouble its readership. More: brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
@guardian @tomphillipsin Despite the huge decrease in Amazon deforestation under PT administrations, @guardian attacked Dilma Rousseff’s Government as if it was an environmental pariah. It then promoted the “free markets” campaign for the coup, and even called for her resignation.
brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
@guardian @tomphillipsin Guardian correspondent selectively quotes Chomsky to attack PT, ousted via a coup 3 years ago - a coup the journalist has never admitted. Omits Chomsky talking about that coup, the US role, and Lula who he calls “the world’s foremost political prisoner”. brasilwire.com/the-strange-ca…
