Abstract

This study is committed to understanding the tremendous changes that have occurred in China's media ecology due to economic reform and the growth of technology. Based on 146 in-depth interviews with journalists from 79 media outlets in four main cities, the current study provides a sufficient understanding of contemporary journalists in Mainland China. The authors summarise the social profiles, work conditions, political values and professional orientations of both traditional and online journalists, and examine how differences between journalists are contingent on the organisational form and geographical location of the media where they work.
