More than four out of five (81 percent of) people surveyed in Brazil in June 2020 said fake news involving politicians and the Supreme Federal Court (STF, as abbreviated in Portuguese) was a threat to democracy in the South American country. Likewise, most people from Brazil who participated in another survey earlier that year stated that there should be a law obliging social media companies to protect users from fake news.
