Abstract In this first comprehensive national study of Australian journalists, the author surveyed 1,068 news people in all mainstream news media. Australian journalists are similar to their US colleagues in distributions of age, sex, and socio-economic background, but have less formal education. Like US journalists, Australians have mixed professional and ethical values and are committed both to investigative and to news-disseminating roles of the media.
