Brazilian president Bolsenaro, quite the authoritarian, threatens Glenn Greenwald to throw him in jail. For doing his job as a journalist.

ICYMI: TheIntercept Brazil (and thus GG) started the exposé of how Operation Carwash judge Sergio Moro, now super-minister of Justice, colluded with the prosecution, to secure convictions.
This shows he was the opposite of an impartial judge.
There are far/even more implications, but you should read the reporting yourself for that.

"In a sweeping ruling Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled the government’s attempts to investigate Greenwald and The Intercept violated Brazil’s Constitution and would 'constitute an unambiguous act of censorship.'"
