A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an invitation to hypnosis.

Discursive strategies used in journalistic news produce meaning effects and contribute to the construction of social realities. Those news make up journalistic narratives, that may support some biases or points of view, which are transmitted by an informative discourse conveyed by the media. Media exerts strong influence in several instances - social, political, economic, legal, and behavioral, and operates from a symbolic perspective, which leads us to consider the information transmitted as a "view" of the event, a construct, not as the clipping of a given reality. In this context, the main objective of this research is analyzing how the Brazilian media coverage has made use of discursive strategies during Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment process in 2016.
