This paper reports on the findings of an ongoing study of cadet reporters at the media in Germany, Australia and Hong Kong. It concludes that regardless of the politico-cultural and linguistic contexts, qualities such as accuracy, thoroughness of research and clarity of writing remain the basics of any journalistic education. Regardless of their undergraduate field of study, as its study of cadet reporters in South China Morning Post, Hong Kong shows, the media organization has the greatest influence in shaping their journalistic values and news product.
