Is this what a journalist is?

by

“Members of the Wisconsin Newspapers Association, the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, and any other Wisconsin media organization designated by the director of state courts.”

From the text of the bill to restrict certain court records to the public, with the exception of law enforcement officers, lawyers and journalists.

    You know that’s interesting–there are other laws on the books that describe a journalist as a “member of an established news organization.”

    While that might leave out bloggers as well, it’s very odd that they would focus on the WNA and the WBA with this one, considering a definition of “journalist” already exists.
