Text in Portuguese. Abstract in English: The article examines the ethical frameworks of two important activities of the Communication field: Journalism and Public Relations (regarding the press officers’ work in the Brazilian
case). First, one discusses the singularities of each activity. Next, we examine the characteristics of the Organizational Theory, dedicated to understanding the constraints that
organizations impose on the producers of information. We conclude that in Brazil there is a constant tension between journalists and press officers. The performance of both
professionals, however, is strongly subsumed under the guidance of their employers.
