Some of the news which was present by Jornal Nacional are criticized by the viewers for not showing all the points of view, using news, and for being excess.
In the 1990s, the Rede Globo’s quality of journalism grew completely. Although Jornal Nacional presented breaking stories to its viewers, it presented the breaking stories like Police Brutality. This was an interview with Paulo Cesar Farias when he was running away from the law when he had corruption cases on his head and the kicking of the saint incident, among many others.
The Rede Globo’s journalism quality again decrease after the death of Marinho recently. During the scandal of Mensalao and the general elections of 2006, The JORNAL NACIONAL was held once again liable for spreading anti-Lula biased news. After this, it lost a huge number of viewers although it was there worst time! On Rede Globo’s 50th anniversary, Jornal Nacional, in 2015, gave its brand new intro and look, however, the theme tune was the same as before.
