This article discusses the apparently selective production of political narratives by major Brazilian newspapers and the use of economic statistics during the period of 2015-2017. We employ content analyses to understand at least three phenomena: the high levels of convergence of the Brazilian print media; the increasing and selective use of specific national statistics; and instances of anomalous patterns in news production
