I agree with Cajun. This is a smart group here kiddo.
By the way, I worked as a reporter for my college newspaper and am a book author (a real publisher) and have
(1) never referred to myself as a "journalist" and
(2) always fully disclosed for whom I worked for, my title, etc. I don't know of any college newspaper where staff reporters are called "journalists."
(3)You might want to do a survey among your own students to these questions. It would make your article more "relatable."
Are you sure this is not some sort of 9th grade research project or research for one of those "online newpapers" that pay you $10 per article?
