Glenn Greenwald Assaulted by Pro-Bolsonaro Journalist During Live Broadcast

Augusto Nunes, a defender of Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, struck Greenwald in the face after the Intercept journalist repeatedly called him a “coward.”

The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald was assaulted during a live broadcast Thursday by a right-wing Brazilian journalist and defender of the country’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro.

Greenwald, whose reporting this year has exposed unethical and possibly criminal behavior by Bolsonaro and his government, repeatedly called journalist and columnist Augusto Nunes a “coward” during a segment on Jovem Pan News, one of Brazil’s largest right-wing radio and Youtube outlets.

In a tweet ahead of his appearance, Greenwald said he had “many questions” for Nunes, who suggested in September that a juvenile judge should investigate Greenwald and his husband, Brazilian lawmaker David Miranda, for neglecting their adopted children.

“We have a lot of political differences, I have no problem being criticized for my work, I criticize him too, but what he did was the ugliest and dirtiest thing I’ve ever seen in my career as a journalist,” Greenwald said of Nunes’ comments during Thursday’s show.

He repeatedly called a man a coward? Lucky he has any teeth to eat with. I thought Greenwald had more sense, and a better command of language.

Thanks to Augusto Nunes! Greenwald is a pseudo-jornalist, he published many fake news. Most Brazilians hate him, also because he is in favor of Lula, who stole lot of money from Brazil.

Greenwald deserved it. Probable if he was at the US should be in jail… Well done Augusto Nunes…
