AbstractAs a fundamental value of the activity, journalistic objectivity has already been conceptually investigated by several academic studies whose results, although published in books and magazines in the area, did not change the way information consumers, journalists and even journalism teachers philosophically understand objectivity and, consequently, its application in the routines and procedures of journalistic practice. This article aims to carry out the bibliographic review of two important works by Brazilian authors that investigated the notion of objectivity. We will discuss Luiz Amaral’s work "The Objectivity of Journalism" and Wilson Gomes's work "Journalism, Facts and Interests", inventing his ways of understanding and discussing this fundamental notion of the activity philosophically.
