Definition of "Journalist" from Merriam-Webster:
1a: a person engaged in journalism; especially : a writer or editor for a news medium
1b: a writer who aims at a mass audience
2: a person who keeps a journal

Everyone on social media meets the qualification.
There's nothing here that tells me that I'm not already a journalist.

In fact, The American Press Institute specifically says that "Asking who is a journalist is the wrong question, because journalism can be produced by anyone."

The distinction between a blog and journalism is very fuzzy.
I'm not sure there actually is one.
There are many twitter accounts with independent investigative reporting, such as @almostjingo and @GOPPollAnalyst

How are they not Journalists?
Newspapers in print are dying. They're being replaced by people just like you who express opinions about or post facts about events.
So my question is, does a public social media site have the right to block content that isn't clearly violent or hateful?

Quick thread about Omarosa & Cohen, who both secretly recorded @realDonaldTrump, and why I've said in the past that the Clinton's don't play politics at the beginner level.

1. Omarosa attended this hilly fundraiser 2016…
2. "All of us have to stick together and get behind this sister because I'm going to tell you, when I was at the White House, she cared about each and every one of us and she made sure we stayed connected to the issues that were important," Omarosa said.…
3. @realDonaldTrump hasn’t yet declared his candidacy for the 2012 presidential election, but he’s already tangled up in an FEC complaint and an abortion flip-flop. Linked to both is Michael Cohen.~Paul Alexander on the Trump adviser’s political résumé.…

It's takes a very shallow dive into how North Korea has been governed to find that the atrocities Kim Jong Un is being blamed for were most likely not his doing.

I get the impression that for several years after he was INSTALLED, he was a hood ornament.…
Please read this thread by Thomas Wictor. "Frog-Marched" is an excellent descriptor. The arm and hand holding in Korean culture is done ONLY for family and close friends. The DPRK messaging is that Kim Jong Un is their close friend. (not true)
Kim Jong Un & his sister Kim Yo Jong were both educated in Switzerland.
His English was bad at first. He had a strong accent and he was given extra lessons.
".. His English got better but not his German.'He was good in maths."…

1. Adam, you & @AnnCoulter @IngrahamAngle @PeteHegseth and so many others underestimated both @POTUS and @MickMulvaneyOMB
Carmine sent me this last night, and I just spent way too much time figuring it out.
2. Remember that Emergency that @POTUS declared but requested no funding for?

Please note that it has been determined that the vast majority of illegal opioids are pouring through the southern border.…
The section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985

Discretionary spending.

Did you know that due to the poor security at the Southern Border, it's also considered a terrorism threat?

1. About the Omnibus & the border wall, you can read what it says starting at page 673 line 16 here:…
1.5 billion to replace existing fencing with approved design such as "steel bollard"
This pic shows a new design @POTUS looked at which fits the bill.
2. The Omnibus bill states that @DHSgov has to file a report to the Senate & House Appropriations committee within 180 days addressing eminent domain, wildlife impact, cost projections etc.

Building a big long wall is going to require jumping through lots of regulatory hoops.
3. After the Comptroller receives the plan, they have 120 days to report to the Appropriation Committees.

That sounds to me like the way you'd have to go about obtaining funding for a big government project.

I'm guessing it will be in next years budget eh @MickMulvaneyOMB ??

1. The MSM & Dems attempting to portray @realDonaldTrump as a foreign policy disaster are absolutely moronic. Their blatant lies are a disservice to us all.…
2. This article is riddled with falsehoods and is an excellent example that shows @TheDemocrats have taken up residence in opposite world.…
3. We had a President for 8 years that was actually loathed on the world stage. He went to Saudi Arabia.…
