I rarely go to the local Bibilotéca (library) which I regret. I would love it if they had free WiFI and a warm place for me and my laptop... it would become my second home. I also rarely go to debates or palestras as I have the listening concentration span of a two year old when people talk to me from a podium.
book (in Portuguese) is a series of cases about Portuguese and international
journalists who have been made to reveal their sources. The main story
of the book is about Manso Preto, who was also there to tell it himself. Manso Preto was a stringer for the "Expresso" newspaper, working
on a drug traffic investigation. He was covincted of contempt of court
when he wouldn't reveal the name of his informant in a drug-dealing
case, and was sentenced to eleven months in prison (and later acquitted in the appeal).
I'm now looking forward to reading Chapter 8, which is related to journalism, blogs and the anonymity of sources.
(Edited to correct the length of Manso Preto's sentence).
