In reality, not so much the case. Case in point. Right-Wing Populist Jair Bolsonaro Sworn In As President Of Brazil.
First, anyone who isn’t as far left as Bill Clinton is always described as “Far Right.” But they never describe anyone as “Far Left.” (Of course that is the media as a whole, not just NPR.)
But they offer up this one bit of “information” with no context.
On Saturday, Bolsonaro tweeted that he would work to ensure every citizen without a criminal background can own a gun.
Horrors! They might have similar gun laws to the USA!
But they offer no context. Why would this resonate with the voting population of Brazil? Because while Brazil currently has some of the most Draconian gun control laws, they have a runaway crime (and murder) problem.
Where the USA has murder rate of 5.35 per 100,000 inhabitants, Brazil – with all those lovely gun control laws – has a murder rate 29.50. Say it again. With all the gun control that the Left and NPR just LOVE, Brazil has a murder rate 5.5 times greater than the US. Could it be that gun control doesn’t stop bad guys from having guns? Could it be that NPR doesn’t want to dwell on the subject, but only hit the high points that they know will trigger their audience?
Media bias? What media bias? Nothing to see her. Move along.
