Nexo Jornal focuses on public interest affairs in Brazil, such as politics, economy, history and societal issues.


Nexo seeks to present accurate and clear information regarding the topics it deals with, from qualified sources.

It has policies to correct any errors quickly and transparently. When an information error is pointed out, either internally by the editorial team or through observations from readers, the editors responsible for the content recheck the data. Once the error has been identified, the content is corrected and is accompanied by a note titled IT WAS WRONG, which highlights the corrected information and when it was corrected.
