RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The open war between Globo's 'Jornal Nacional' (National News) and President Jair Bolsonaro peaked last week and led the main Brazilian news broadcaster to climb in IBOPE poll figures, achieving its best results in more than two months.
The 34 million viewers record was topped, outperforming the 9 PM telenovela (soap opera) 'A Dona do Pedaço'. Rio-based Globo is the biggest media company in Latin America and, thanks to its extraordinary reach, some see it as the real center of power in Brazil.
