Brazilians are complaining about the bias of the major weekly news conservative magazine Veja, from Grupo Abril ('mente' means lies). Veja lies and deliberately distorts news reports and sometimes they even fabricate reports without backing it with any empirical evidence, only anecdotal ones (ie: their last edition stated that they had an audio tape to back up their accusations, but until now no video/audio tape has come into public). So Paulo state, under the government of the right-wing conservative party PSDB (Brazilian Social Democracy Party) for 24 years, keeps public contracts with the magazine that transferred to its parent holding, Grupo Abril, a total of US$ 20.414.395,60. These contracts are under the investigation of the State Prosecution Office in a claim made by Ivan Valente of the PSOL (Socialism and Freedom Party).
