5:24 pm
overcome all the laws that to be told that it's over that boy i mean. much of the misinformation is happening on whatsapp which is the preeminent messaging platform in brazil more than half the population uses the service whatsapp is a political force there like no where outs. joey or both are not all into the campaign as an outsider from a small party knowing he could not count on coverage or advertising time on mainstream media outlets he and his supporters went all in on social media and it's paid off. according to an investigation published in brazil's most widely read newspaper disarm power also narrows whatsapp offensive has been secretly boost by several unnamed corporations those companies paid digital marketing firms experts at some of the dark arts of the web a total of three point two million dollars to push probe also not on messaging

attacking his opponent had died with stories many. of which were made up. under brazilian electoral law such undisclosed corporate donations to a political campaign are illegal also nado called for your disarm palos investigation fake news of. you. in face market ourselves we run a full fact check on the story with sources who deal directly with the agencies responsible for sending these messages we concluded that there has been undeclared support from businesses for a presidential candidate and that is against electoral law in brazil this is been subverting the campaign. has denied all accusations after all if he admitted any wrongdoing he would be admitting to an electoral crime assuming known criminal silly question you know it's a question we cannot know for sure whether both or not all was aware about

businessmen taking such action in his favor the fact is he has a tendency to do pete fake stories untruths that do the rounds on social media put instance in many interviews he mentions a book obviously the will of one that supposedly promoted homosexuality in brazilian schools during fire on the head that's time as education minister in reality this book had never been included in any school syllabus weakness. usually show your boss and i don't does not share fake material he leaves the bulk of that to others but he did share this image on twitter purportedly showing a death threat against him when it emerged that the picture was actually two years old had nothing to do with politics and had been photo shopped both are not all deleted. the formerly fringe politician finds himself well ahead in the polls despite rhetoric that once would have kept him out of the mainstream.

i thought. it would be hard to believe. and in two thousand and sixteen when he voted to impeach former leftist president dilma rousseff he dedicated his vote to an intelligence officer who ran torture programs in the one nine hundred seventy s. among those tortured mistress just herself. in a campaign rice with misinformation social media companies have been slow to react over the past three months facebook has taken down hundreds of accounts and pages what it called a coordinated network built for so long division and spreading misinformation measures that appear to be too little and in the case of this election too like. the sinking of social media platforms keep saying they are neutral but this is
5:28 pm
false because their algorithms decide what content each person receives that makes them editors but they have never taken their responsibilities as editors seriously they announce partnerships with fact checking agencies and newspapers to look like they're doing something but it is completely ineffective the issue is the business of social media these platforms are fueled by hatred and anger and negative feelings that motivate people to engage in conversations and spend more time on the apps. that use. it is the facts that brazilians trust people who are close to them more than institutions like the media or the judiciary for example this campaign has taken place mainly on social media primarily on what people receive information from those who are close to them and believe these people are suspicious or so. and then there's the issue of polarization fake news appeals to people's emotions so if the content you receive is reinforcing your
5:29 pm

5:30 pm

5:31 pm
a public figure and is shown the ability to get close to most. political parties he's a pragmatist if nothing else once upon a time he was close to the workers' party this time around he has found an ideological alliance with both sinatra we can see a clear proximity not around economic or political ideas but in matters of culture and the gym a sado will likely benefit from that partnership this precipices. media owners usually do when their chosen candidate takes power although show your boss or not or having run most of his campaign online may feel less indebted than most one more thing the brazilian media might consider as the former military man prepares for the presidency that torture chiefs both and i don't chose to honor that day in brasilia he didn't just have political activists as his victims he also ordered and oversaw the torture of news reporters are your boss are not oh does not mince his
