    In reality, courts define journalists as full time employees of news media organizations. We know the states do not require journalists professional licenses to work, compared to attorneys or medical doctors. The question here is whether a part-time news contributor can still keep the legal status of journalist if he or she graduated from an accredited university.

    Totally agree with this, but the surname Strauß translates into English as Strauss, not Straub.
