Bribery and corruption among Third World journalists is the topic of this article as it reflects on how such practices hinder the type of journalism that might be effective in advancing the development agendas of these countries. In the Philippines, 54 provincial journalists were interviewed about the nature of their work and the social and economic influences that restrain journalism and professionalism there. It was concluded that as long as journalists are poorly paid and as long as they are physically endangered, the practice of envelope journalism, or bribery, will continue.
