Autores: Luis Felipe Miguel e Flávia Biroli
Resumo: This article presents the results of a comprehensive study on representations of politics in the Brazilian mass media. The data show that the various news media take a common view towards politics, expressed as homogeneous news concentrated on political players with a specific profile: white males, either elected officials or political nominees. The media give visibility to the players belonging to the political field (in the narrow sense of the latter term) and to those who already have the resources to make themselves seen and heard. The media thus confirm the hierarchies and limits of politics, reproducing and perpetuating narrow interpretations of democracy.
As reuniões do PONTE são abertas ao público e acontecem semanalmente, às quartas-feiras, às 18h, no Centro de Humanidades II (CH2), no prédio “Poleiro”, da Universidade Federal do Ceará (UFC).
