Introduction to Brazil News Media

Brazil boasts of a media network that is the biggest in South America, with hundreds of television channels and thousands of radio stations operating from within the country. Brazil is also popular for its TV soaps and drama series called telenovelas. Besides these TV shows, some of the game shows and reality TV shows are broadcast around the world.

Media Ownership

Only a few media conglomerates, like Globo, dominate the market in Brazil. Leading broadcaster Globo owns and operates many TV channels, radio outlets, newspapers, websites and pay TV. According to the United States-based Freedom House, most of the private media houses are owned by those who have connections with political parties. And thus, these political parties use the media outlets to promote their own interests.

Press Freedom

Freedom of press is guaranteed by the Brazilian constitution. Many of the media outlets talk freely about politics as well as social issues of the country. However, according to Reporters Without Borders, Brazil is one of the most violent countries for journalists in Latin America. The country has a “climate of impunity fuelled by ubiquitous corruption”, says Reporters Without Borders.

The Committee to Protect Journalists claims that the politicians often use the laws that restrict or silence the journalists as well as media outlets that criticise the government.

Internet Media

As many as 139 million Brazilians had access to internet by 2017, according to the Internet World Stats. It is half of the country’s population. Most of the people use mobile broadband for the internet. Therefore most of the Brazilian media organisations have their presence on web, social media and mobile applications.

However, Freedom House claims that the authorities maintain a “digital divide” between the urban and rural areas. The bloggers are often attacked for criticising the government and face defamation laws and restrictions while covering elections.

Conclusion

Brazil has a strong network of media with its estimate calculated at 35.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2015. German database company Statista had projected that the Brazilian media and entertainment market would grow to nearly 48.7 billion U.S. dollars by 2020. More than 48 percent of the Brazilian population trust media.

Prominent Media

Globo is not only the biggest Brazilian media conglomerate but also one of the largest media companies around the globe. The media giant had generated a revenue of 15.3 billion Brazilian reals in 2016. In the same year, the Latin America’s largest media company earned a net profit of 1.56 billion Brazilian reals.

Status of Press

In 2013, Brazil had more than five thousand newspapers operating from within the country. The number was roughly two thousand in 2001. In 2015, the newspapers had registered daily circulation of 8.4 millions units. Weekly news magazine Veja, which is published by Grupo Abril, is the most circulated publication in Brazil. However, the readership is on decline in the nation as the magazine readers in Brazil dropped from 92 million in 2012 to 67.5 million in 2014.
