    • Abstract:
      In this paper, we try to identify the discursive matrices that permeate the notion of "investigative journalism" in Brazil, from the military dictatorship until the present day, in order to observe displacements of meaning in the act of naming the practice. Our research brought to light two principal approaches to investigative reporting, which we reconstitute in this paper: a police matrix, predominant through to the dictatorial period, which was characterized by the exploration of popular themes and emphasized the courage of journalists; and a political matrix characterized by the predominance of investigations of corruption, as influenced by institutions like the Brazilian Investigative Journalism Association (Abraji), dedicated to the growing professionalization of journalism. Neste artigo tentamos identificar matrizes discursivas que perpassam a noção de “jornalismo investigativo” no Brasil, desde o período de ditadura militar até os dias atuais, para observar deslocamentos de sentido nos atos de nomeação da prática. Assim, tentamos reconstituir duas abordagens do investigativo: uma matriz policial, predominante até o período ditatorial, que se caracterizava pela exploração de temáticas populares e enfatizava a coragem dos jornalistas; e uma matriz política, caracterizada pela predominância de investigações de corrupção e pela atuação de instituições como a Associação Brasileira de Jornalismo Investigativo (Abraji), dedicadas à crescente profissionalização do jornalismo. En este artículo buscamos identificar matrices discursivas que atravesan la noción de "periodismo investigativo" en Brasil, desde el período de dictadura militar hasta los días actuales, para observar desplazamientos de sentido en los actos de nombramiento de la práctica. De esa manera, intentamos reconstituir dos enfoques del investigador: una matriz policial, predominante hasta el período dictatorial, que se caracterizaba por la explotación de temáticas populares y enfatizaba el coraje de los periodistas; y una matriz política, caracterizada por el predominio de investigaciones acerca de corrupción y por la actuación de instituciones como Associação Brasileira de Jornalismo Investigativo(Abraji), dedicadas a la creciente profesionalización del periodismo.
