      Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.

        brasileira e controlada por uma meia duzia de baroes, e e majoritariamente conservadora (nao muito diferente da Argentina, Mexico, e Venezuela).

        O grupo RSF publicou um estudo sobre a imprensa brasileira, intitulado  "The Country of Thirty Berlusconis". Abaixo, um pequeno trecho :

        The shape of media ownership in Brazil directly affects the free flow of news and information and obstructs pluralism. Ten leading business groups owned by as many families still control the mass media market. Broadcasting is dominated by the Rio-based Globo group, owned by the Marinho family, followed by the Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão (SBT), owned by the Silvio Santos group, Rede Bandeirantes owned by the Saad group, and Record (owned by the evangelical protestant bishop Edir Macedo – see box page 20). In the print media, the pack is again led by the Globo group, with the Globo daily, which is rivalled at the national level by the Folha de São Paulo group, owned by the Frias Filho family, the O Estado de São Paulo group, owned by the Mesquita family, and by Editora Abril, which publishes the weekly Veja and other magazines. Less polarized than the media in its South American neighbours, where state and privately- owned media are often at war with each other, the Brazilian media reflect their almost incestuous relationship with the political and economic power centres. Concentration of ownership at the national and regional level and harassment and censorship at the more local level are the distinguishing features of a system that has never really been questioned since the end of the 1964 -85 military dictatorship, with community media often the main victims (see boxes page 20). The generals have gone but the “colonels” remain.
