Rubens Menin, owner of CNN Brazil, praised the economy of the government of Jair Bolsonaro (PL) on Thursday (1). On the same day, there was a massive layoff of the news channel In newsrooms in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Brasilia. In an internal statement on the laid-off employees, the company said the cutbacks reduced costs.

“The new figures from IBGE have superimposed revisions on the Brazilian economy, where its GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has improved considerably in 2020 and 2021, reaching impressive growth of 5% in 21 and 3% in the first half of 22. ,” he wrote. In the description of the post. On Wednesday (30), he also shared “good financial news” on his Instagram account.
a news CNN Brazil staff appeared to be outraged by Menin’s post. The reason for the cost cutting described in the internal statement is a big question as the channel owner recently praised the country’s improved economic situation.
The press channel started showing signs of crisis in August this year. When 35% of the team was kicked out of Rio de Janeiro🇧🇷 On Thursday (1), almost all employees in the capital Rio de Janeiro were fired and the branch was suspended. With the team already weakened, Brasilia only had two parcels. A day of rage is reflected in São Paulo: Mona Lisa Peroni, Gloria Vanek and Marcela Rahal are the names that appear.
Monalisa is one of the channel’s stars and has a contract with CNN and will be paid until her contract expires next year. She left Globo three years ago for an “irreplaceable show” at Contenderwhich opened its doors in Brazil at that time.
