Representative of the news media
Representative of the news media refers to any person actively gathering news for an entity that is organized and operated to publish or broadcast news to the public.
(1) The term “news” means information about current events or that would be of current interest to the public.
(2) Examples of news media entities include, but are not limited to, television or radio stations broadcasting to the public at large, and publishers of newspapers and other periodicals (but only in those instances when they can qualify as disseminators of “news”) who make their products available for purchase or subscription by the general public.
(3) “Freelance” journalists may be regarded as working for a news organization if they can demonstrate a solid basis for expecting publication through that organization, even though not actually employed by it.
