The media in the US is an extension of the US state. It may offer some kind of critical coverage of national politics, some venues might be more progressive or conservative, but when it comes to reporting on the Third World, they're united in representing American corporations and the American State Department.

Live from São Paulo, Brian Mier reports on a new wave of mass strikes across Brazil - as millions of students and workers take the streets against the fracturing coalition of fascist president Jair Bolsonaro and the government that placed him in office, the corporate press in the Global North diminishes or ignores the will and the voice of Brazilian people.

Brian reported on the 1.8 million large strike wave for TeleSur English's program From The South.
