Producer Bryan Myers and correspondent Edie Magnus report from the roads of Brazil.

This piece was part of the Blueprint America project on infrastructure.

This report is biased and is an US-America view of other countries. Can WORLD FOCUS learn to pronounce names and words in the local language (in this case Portuguese) before they do the report? World Focus reports sounds silly when they pronounce Portuguese like Spnaish. Journalist should be more globalized and well educated. She pronouces the name “José” in Portuguese like in Spanish and other many words. Disapoiting and offensive to the Brazilian and Portuguese speaking people.
All World Focus reporters have the same problem. The anchors are even worse.
