"To ensure that the mood is up in the country during the World Cup, Russian state media has also quietly stopped broadcasting news deemed too negative. Other state organs have also done the same; for example, the interior ministry had officially ordered its regional branches not to publish information about crime."

Same is happening in Brazil. Suddenly, the problems were mostly gone from the news. The Globo News webpage has 90% of its space dedicated to world cup.
