Abstract: 

Drawing on perspectives on occupation and identity, this study examines
Russian regional journalists’ perceptions of their professional community.
Different journalistic values derived from a fierce professional competition
contributed to reporters’ view of the community as disjointed and polarized.
The study also found that type of ownership influenced journalists’ identity
and the way they conceptualize practice. Although journalists of private
newspapers believe a newspaper should be a profit-generating enterprise, state
owned=supported newspapers’ reporters think a quality paper should inform
citizens regardless of profit concern. In this province, state-owned or supported
newspapers have well-defined missions, whereas the paper that struggles to
survive as privately owned lacks clearly articulated goals.
