Journalist Alexandre Garcia is no longer a commentator on the CNN television network. The broadcaster informed his contract termination on Friday night (24).
A self-confessed supporter of President Jair Bolsonaro (non-party), he was denied live this Friday again on CNN Brazil, after saying that “medicines saved thousands of lives” in the covid-19 pandemic. After the statement made by the pocket scientist, journalist Elisa Veeck stressed that there is no remedy with proven efficacy against this disease.
::Since Covid’s CPI announcement, at least 109 videos have disappeared from Alexandre Garcia’s pages::
This was Garcia’s second denial. Recently, on “CNN New Day,” he was dismissed live after stating that young people “wouldn’t need to get the vaccine according to statistics.”

Termination of contract with journalist Alexandre Garcia
CNN Brasil announces that it terminated its contract with journalist Alexandre Garcia this Friday (24).
The decision was taken after the commentator reiterated the defense of early treatment against Covid-19 with the use of drugs without proven efficacy.
The frame “Freedom of Opinion” will continue on the station’s programming, within the “Novo Dia” newspaper.
CNN Brasil reinforces its commitment to facts and plurality of opinions, pillars of democracy and good journalism.
