Finally, the driver left a few words on the news in the media and politics: “Governments of much of the world they brought the media into the political debatesomething that we clearly perceive in Argentina, but which also happened in The United States with Donald Trump and in Brazil it happened with Jair Bolsonaro. From that, people have begun to behave around what is termed ‘confirmation bias’, the search in the media to find what you think. It is somewhat complex, since maintaining independence from this has become hostile. This has led us to survive in a jungle, where even listeners or readers have become radicalized.

Today, a speech of mine uploaded to Instagram is seen by 400,000 people, half of the people who previously listened to me on the radio. Like this, we are on a journey that we do not know very well where it is goingbut what you have to climb in order not to be left behind “.
