OmniTech News Source & First Amendment
Josh 201604 KWP
According to a U.S. District Court Judge in Oregon, Honorable Marco A. Hernandez, "press", in context of the First Amendment to the US Constitution, specifically means persons "affiliated with any newspaper, magazine, periodical, book, pamphlet, news service, wire service, news or feature syndicate, broadcast station or network, or cable television system." Online journalism is now legally excluded unless affiliated with an entity of one or more of those types.

As such, be it known that all of my communication via any online forum is formally a media for communication to the public as an agent of the "OmniTech News Service". This service will include fact, fiction, assumptions, satire, and any other form of communication deemed appropriate by the staff.

Yah, I agree. I mean, a legal journalist is not a legal professional, no matter how much experience she has watching solicitors or barristers.

And the interesting thing is "define blogger" vs journalist. *sigh*
