He's exceptional.

I still kinda like Bolsonaro though.
It was a stupid thing to say, but then again Hollywood has been blaming him for the problem even though this has been a recurrent problem since long before he took office. Moral of the story, there are ways to tardwrangle people, but becoming just as exceptional as them is not one of those ways.

I know it is a bit of a stretch but people are missing these 2 key sentences on the article:
Bolsonaro’s comments follow a police raid at the headquarters of two nonprofit groups in the Amazonian state of Para.
Several volunteer firefighters, who deny wrongdoing, were arrested and later released. Local police say they are being investigated for allegedly igniting fires to obtain funding through nonprofits.
There is a video with subtitles tackling the full story on the subject:

Fake news, as fun as it gets.

Brazil recently arrested activists (from some org. whose name I can't remember) who had been found to start fires in the Amazon forest. After doing so, these people would take pictures and film it to distribute it among other environmental organizations to use as propaganda. They would later put down the fire, but the damaged was done.

What Bolso meant is that people like DiCaprio, people who supports these organizations, inspires activists to do things like this because they know they're getting the money. Some of that money was given to fire brigades but not in a very legal way.

Not remotely what the article says, nor what I'm seeing being circulated around. And Dicaprio is pretty much an useful idiot here.

WTF is a content strategist. What you do? Give yourself a fancy name for being a biased writer or spin doctor.

I don't think this is really a case of bias tbh. I just think he's an entertainment journalist, that's like a fish out of water when it comes to any political writing. You can see the other stuff he's written here.


A more honest headline would have been something like "Bolsonaro attacks Leonardo DiCaprio over support of allegedly corrupt non-profit."

Pretty much what I figured.

That faggot needs to be taken down a notch or two for parading all around the globe with his million dollar private jet and fancy cars and at the end of the day have the nerve to preach to us that we're killing off the earth and give off too much co2. Him and his celebrity """"""eco-activists"""""" one by one need to live in the woods with no cell phone, no running water, and no electricity for a month and see the kind of eco-friendly lifestyle they're promoting us to live.
Fucking hypocrites won't do it. Why? Because they want to control the masses; They think it's so cute when we jump when they say jump and we buy what they tell us to buy and feel what they tell us to feel. This whole eco bullshit is just a thinly veiled version of that, regardless of if climate change is even real or not. It's their way of becoming god-like saviors that were so wise to see that our carefree way of life was going to kill us all, but they knew better and in order for us to repent, we would have to follow their exact instructions on how to live our own daily lives, while they watch from their ivory towers and giggle at what sheep we are and continue to enjoy their expensive fruits of needless logging and massive carbon dioxide output and such that they say to us is killing off the one earth we have.

But all of this is obvious if you pay attention to this shit in the slightest.

My first clue that this article was full of shit was that it's from the mainstream press. The proof I needed that Bolsonaro was probably telling the truth and being deliberately smeared was the inclusion of their favorite little qualifier: "without evidence."

Press drones mashing buttons said:
Bolsonaro has claimed in the past, without evidence, that the fires were started by nongovernmental organizations in retaliation for his administration's funding cuts.
Any time I see that phrase added to a piece, I now automatically replace it with the word "correctly," and it works much better at getting to the truth. As your post illustrates, he does have evidence. So this journalist is simply lying.

I want every journalist who's written or said "without evidence" in the last three years to defend each instance where they've done it. If evidence can be shown that was available at the time they wrote it, I want them to explain why they haven't issues a public retraction of their original claim and shouldn't be thrown in prison for blatantly lying to the public. I want this done live on broadcast television (and livestreamed, of course), with archives of all of it posted to Youtube, LiveLeak, BitChute and archive.org. They say "sausage is great unless you've seen how it's made." I want people to think the same way about the news.
