JN accuses Bolsonaro of ‘untruth’
A traditional critic of Jair Bolsonaro’s actions, Jornal Nacional pointed out “untruths” in a note released by the president to publicize the federal government’s measures during the pandemic and rebut a video from the Supreme Court. Editor-in-chief and anchor of the most watched news in the country, William Bonner avoided using the word lie.
“President Jair Bolsonaro used today  a social network to defend the federal government’s role in the pandemic. Yesterday , the STF published a video on the internet in reaction to the president’s insistence on repeating an untruth: that the STF had withdrawn power from the federal government and decided that only mayors and governors could take protective measures against the pandemic,” he explained the journalist.
In the video, the Supreme clarified that all powers had to act together with measures to protect the population. As a result, Bonner denied an excerpt from the note published by Bolsonaro about the actions in the pandemic.
“The president again failed to tell the truth when he stated that the federal government twice appealed against governors’ decrees and that the actions were not analyzed. The two actions were, yes, analyzed. One by the then minister Marco Aurélio Mello and the other by the Minister Luís Roberto Barroso. Both were rejected for procedural reasons,” informed the anchor.
