Fight Fire with Propaganda

Brazil's President Bolsonaro has become increasingly unpopular thus it appears that the powers that be have decided that he is responsible for the Amazon's annual fire cycle.

The fires have received excessive press coverage and even 'spurred' riots in London and even an agenda item at the G8 conference, but NASA reports the fires to be on par for the last fifteen years (Africa is also on fire, but nobody reports that), with above average activity in Amazonas and Rondônia.


When you consume 'news' remind yourself that six companies control 90% of the information in America and one company controls 89% of access to that information.
