AbstractThe study reports the results of a survey done to examine British journalism students attitudes towards journalism ethics and news media done in 2001 and 2003. Findings are compared with similar data for British journalists. Influences such as social background, gender, and time spent in newsrooms are examined. The findings provide some evidence for a distinct British journalistic "culture" already embedded in students' attitudes when they begin formal journalism education.
