Re: journalist & reporter
I'm here, and I use the word interchangeably when I'm talking about the person who called and wants an interview.
I agree that the work of a reporter seems more direct -- read about, interview, investigate, and report -- while the work of a journalist is broader and can include the editorial and production end of things.
I must disagree with Jasmin. The phrase "print journalism" to refer to newspapers (primarily) and magazines is well established. Meanwhile, the news flourishes online and on TV, although I personally get a lot of my news from the radio.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
