Keep Going: How to survive when your President is harassing you on national TV

Patricia Campos Mello was a mind-mannered journalist until Brazil's Bolsorano made her a target. Then she fought back.

Patricia Campos Mello is a journalist who has reported from war-torn countries all over the world. A few years ago, she hired a bodygaurd - something she never did - in her own country. Why? Because Brazil's President Bolsorano had singled her out as a threat to his reelection.

In this episode, we talk to Campos Mello about her experience, what she did to cope, and what it took to remain a journalist in the face of abuse.
