played a major role in ushering in change and in the overseeing Brasil's transition from military to democratic rule during the late 1970's.
Since then and especially during the 1990's, newsapers and journalists has been instrumental in bringing to the
fore, Brazil's social and economic problems, including poverty, political corruption and homelessness.

Brazil news tv channels and a host of enterntainment channels
have become increasingly popular and accessible through paid subscription and cable TV.
