Setting the agenda? The selective use of statistics in Brazilian media

Abstract
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
