Too Soon to Give Up, Too Late to Really Matter

Impasses, Self-Deception, and Brazil’s Media-Democratization Agenda

(p.68) 4 Too Soon to Give Up, Too Late to Really Matter
Emergent Brazil

Fernando Lattman-Weltman

University Press of Florida

Since the arrival of the PT (the Workers’ Party) to central power in Brazil (2002), the issue of mass media regulation became a hot topic in the country's political debate, due to the historical commitment of some of the party's sectors to a so-called agenda of media-democratization. This chapter addresses 1) the impasses of this agenda until now (as we are in the midst of a third PT presidential administration); and, 2) the media-democratization issue in itself, in particular its possible inherently self-deceptive nature.

Keywords:   Workers’ Party, mass media, media regulation, elections, democracy, media politicization
