Abstract

On the eve of the colonial war in Luanda, the ABC-Diário de Angola sought ways to keep as far as possible from Oliveira Salazar’s regime and its overseas policy. With an approach inspired by content and discourse analysis and with the support of research in archives, in this article we identify newspaper’s options and practices, contributing to the characterization of a newspaper that came to be seen in the Ministry of Overseas as a «dangerous fifth column». We also reflect on the specificity that the title managed to have under the authoritarian regime of Estado Novo [New State]. Without his founder, the paper would evolve, at the end of the decade, into a government-aligned daily, becoming a herald of the last chief of the dictatorship.
