In this May 29, 2019 handout photo provided by Agencia Brasil, Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro listens as Carla Zambelli whispers into his ear during a meeting at Congress, in Brasilia, Brazil. Several weeks after publishing explosive reports on a top member of Brazil’s far-right government, U.S. journalist Glenn Greenwald sat before the Human Rights and Minorities Commission. During the June 25 hearing Zambelli told Greenwald: "If you don't prove this information, it is fake and you're a liar. If it's true, then you're a criminal because you hacked someone's phone."

RIO DE JANEIRO
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro says he wants a "filter" on the country's audiovisual production, possibly limiting public funding to projects his administration deems fit.

Bolsonaro said Friday that without some sort of filter, he will consider shutting down the government-run National Cinema Agency. The agency oversees regulation and financing for Brazil's film and audiovisual industry.

The president commented a day after signing a decree moving another agency that determines governments policy on movies from the citizenship and culture ministry to his chief of staff's office. Critics say the move will increase government oversight on the body.

Bolsonaro said Thursday that Brazil should no longer use public funds for films that "disrespect families."

The president is a devout Christian and ran a right-wing campaign on a socially conservative agenda.

1. Well, that's the end of Brazil's great filmmaking tradition.

OTOH, it's an idea Trump would love to impose here.

4. Bolsonaro's sons are good friends with trump's sons

One of Bolsonaro's sons is under criminal investigation for money laundering, and Bolsonaro wants to nominate another to be ambassador to the US.

There was a time the US would criticize a corrupt, radical right winger like Bolsonaro, but now we have our own corrupt, radical right winger in the White House who wants to take us down the same path.

5. Greenwald was unavailable for comment...

The fascist nightmare he helped enable in the U.S. has come home to roost in his own fuckin' adopted country... Where he thought he was safe in his little leftist ivory tower looking down on the rest of us...
