José Reinaldo Azevedo e Silva (Dois Córregos, August 19, 1961) is a Brazilian political journalist with a liberal political orientation or, he says, inserted in the field of the liberal and democratic right. Currently, Reinaldo is a columnist in Folha de S.Paulo newspaper and acts as a commentator on RedeTV! News, of RedeTV! channel, in addition to presenting the program "Pela Ordem" on the platforms of the station. Azevedo's blog was listed in 2014 as one of the top ten political blogs in Brazil. He has conservative political views and has criticised the political actions of the Workers' Party (Brazil) and its leader, the former president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

He had for 12 years his blog hosted on the site of Veja, however, on May 23, 2017 decided to rescind contract with the magazine, migrating his blog to RedeTV Portal!. On the same date, he resigned from the Jovem Pan radio, where he anchored the evening program "Os Pingos nos Is". The next day, the journalist made his debut as an anchor in the program "Pela Ordem" on RedeTV channel !. That same week, he also signed a contract with Radio BandNews FM, whose new program "O É da coisa" debuted at 6pm on May 29, 2017.

Political Views[edit]

Reinaldo Azevedo has positioned himself on the right of the political spectrum of Brazilian politics, overtly supporting some social conservatism positions, and being particularly skeptical of the Workers' Party. As an early critic of the Workers' Party, he was vindicated by the multiple corruption allegations involving their politicians, now spread out to all the important parties. He has also criticized Dilma Rousseff, the former Brazilian president who was impeached. The journalist criticizes the Operation Car Wash (Portuguese: Operação Lava Jato), because the excesses of the prosecutors of the task force disregard the laws and threaten the rule of law.[1] Azevedo has also criticized the Supreme Court for assuming a legislative role in the Brazil, usurping the attribution of National Congress.
