Asia Pacific Media Educator
This article paints a picture of the professional culture of journalists at one regional daily newspaper in Queensland, Australia in relation to their self-described practices in the representation of indigenous Australians. The author suggests that journalists' ideologies and self described practices tend to conflict. However this conflict tends to be rationalised and justified by the journalists on the basis of the reality of their practices and adherence to conventional news values.
