I thought I was living in a democracy: Dilma Rousseff, on trial.

The Economist said she should step down, the Washington Post said she should step down, now they've both backpedaled and realized that this impeachment is fraudulent. All of a sudden the New York Times and the Guardian are backpedaling. After the damage has been done, the Northern media that was feeding into this illegal coup is acting as if they had nothing to do with it, as if they're objective news sources.

Live from São Paulo, Brian Mier reports on the impeachment of Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff - a trial without an actual impeachable offense, but with plenty of corrupt, evangelical, privatization-worshiping elites in the opposition, and explains why US intervention in the politics of Brazil (and Latin America) is just as destabilizing (and profitable) as ever.

Brian recommends reading the Intercept article After Vote to Remove Brazil’s President, Key Opposition Figure Holds Meetings in Washington.
