Contemporary journalism: in search of a constructive theory

Sérgio Luiz Gadini


This essay discusses and explores some of the possible relationships between the perspective that includes journalism as a unique form of knowledge production (Adelmo Genro Filho, 1988) and the constructive approach to journalistic production (Gaye Tuchmann, 1983 and 1993; and Nelson Traquina, 1993 and 2001). In an articulate discussion including remarks, critiques and observations from several authors who deal with journalism, the author supports the idea that the potential of journalistic production lies in its singularity of everyday action and consequently in the established dimension of relationships and events that constitute contemporary social reality.
