Bolivia, Brazil: Evo and Lula in Vienna

Boli-Nica says not everything was friendly between Evo Morales and Lula da Silva as Latin American leaders met with their UN counterparts in Vienna. Briegel Busch says that Lula's dialogue with Evo Morales was much more firm than was reported by the press (ES). Meanwhile, Jim Shultz compares AP and Reuters coverage of the Vienna meeting and concludes that coverage of Morales’ meeting with da Silva is “in the eye of the beholder.” In a comment, however, Eduardo Ávila remarks that “it makes sense that headlines are different because the Saturday morning breakfast meeting added new developments from what was written during the week.”
