This comes a week after Lula officially pulled out of next month’s presidential race. Lula has been jailed since April. Speaking outside the prison after his visit, Noam Chomsky condemned the right-wing media in Brazil. Noam Chomsky: “We had just had the great privilege of spending an hour with Lula. And one of the points that he emphasized was that during his entire tenure in office, there was just a constant flood of attacks from all the media, constantly, thousands of attacks from every direction, which, of course, confuses and undermines public opinion. So the answer to your question is, something is needed to counter the concentrated power of right-wing media, which, particularly in Latin America, just overwhelms everything.”"* Read more here: https://www.democracynow.org/2018/9/21/headlines/noam_chomsky_visits_brazils_former_president_lula_in_prison Watch the Majority Report live M–F at 12 p.m. EST at youtube.com/samseder or listen via daily podcast at http://Majority.FM Download our FREE app: http://majorityapp.com SUPPORT the show by becoming a member: http://jointhemajorityreport.com LIKE us on Facebook: http://facebook.com/MajorityReport FOLLOW us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/MajorityFM SUBSCRIBE to us on YouTube: http://youtube.com/SamSeder

In 2014. the Workers' Party won.

In 2018 the Workers' Party says it needs to win to fix the country that is destroyed. Are we mentally weak or do we have any other problem?

Jason Kennedy: Bolsonaro 2018

Hey There: Fascism has never worked. PT isn't perfect but they lifted millions out of poverty. Bolsonaro will bring back the military dictatorship if he's given power

Socialism Done Left: The right always cheats. When they have power, they are never afraid to use it. This is why we must destroy all nondemocratic power sources -- we need truly democratic media, truly democratic elections, truly democratic economies. Capital cannot use power it does not have.
