Abstract

The objective is to contextualize the book O segredo da pirâmide: para uma teoria marxista do jornalismo [The secret of the pyramid: for a Marxist theory of journalism], by the Brazilian theoretician Adelmo Genro Filho, facing the questions of Brazilian journalism in the 1980s. As an analysis device, we performed a detailed reading of four texts edited in August 5, 1984, in the section “Folhetim”, of the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, and of the first seven paragraphs of the book. Among the main themes presented are the need for specific training for the profession, the role and shortcomings of communication schools for the training of journalists, the division of value and power within newsrooms, and thwe lack of dialogue theories with practice of journalists.
