Your Reading indicates how much you are informed about a particular subject according to the depth and contextualization of the contents you read. Our team of editors credits 20, 19, 60, 100 or 100 points for each content – those that help the most in understanding the moment of the country receive more points. Over time, this score is reduced, as newer content tends to be more relevant in understanding the news. Thus, your score in this system is dynamic: it increases when you read and decreases when you stop being informed. At the moment the score is being made only in content related to the federal government.

How about knowing more about this subject?

Last week, President Jair Bolsonaro refused to testify at the Federal Police and talk about the investigation that investigates the leak of confidential data in that case of the invasion of the electoral system by a hacker. In a way, it was an act that questions the authority of Minister Alexandre de Moraes. Soon after, doubts began to arise: would Bolsonaro give in to supreme pressure? Or worse: would Alexandre de Moraes have the courage to subject the president to coercive conduct or something? Adding even more fuel to this fire, Minister Luis Roberto Barroso raised the tone of his criticism of the president, implying that he just doesn’t arrest him because he really can’t.

Meanwhile, news from the front of the pandemic suggests that the fought bets on permanent doubt and common sense will eventually prevail over the scientism and the resulting authoritarianism. From Japan comes the news that ivermectin (remember it?) can indeed be effective against the coronavirus. And from the prestigious Johns Hopkins hospital comes a meta-analysis exposing what everyone already suspected: the destructive lockdowns did not serve to save lives.
