Journalism and self-regulation: results from a cross-country survey among journalists

In light of the discussion on journalistic quality, the effectivity of self-regulation and proposals of other types of regulation in journalism, a consortium of twelve European and two Arabic countries (MediaAcT, as part of the Seventh EU Framework Programme) conducted a quantitative survey among professional journalists (N = 1,764) in 2011. This article discusses perceptions of journalists on media regulation from four perspectives (State, market, profession and audience) against the background of different media systems (cf. Hallin & Mancini, 2004). While showing a set of deviations, the results partially confirm the theoretical model. We recommend that European policy be more directed towards safeguarding freedoms as well as stimulating self-regulation among media companies.
