Marinho's Communists


[Brazilian media mogul Roberto Marinho] divided his countrymen roughly into 'patriots' and 'bad Brazilians'. But he accepted that people could change categories. On one occasion he refused to hand over members of his staff to the ruling military who said they were communists. 'I will take care of my own communists,' he said. None was fired; all were told to be more patriotic."

[On the other hand, "for patriotic reasons" Marinho also remained close to the generals during the military dictatorship between 1964 and 1985.]
