    organization that publishes newspapers

    A correspondent works for one of the several versions of a newspaper or magazine that are printed. Would there be a word that coveys generic meaning similar to a news agency? A term that can be used for both a newspaper and a magazine?

    Journalist?

    One might say "he's a journalist for Reuters".

    Re: organization that publishes newspapers

    One who publishes papers or magazines is a "publisher."

    Or do you mean something like a "news organization"?

    Or, more specific, the "print media."

    Yes. Something like a news organization that publishes a newspaper or magazine.

    There is no specific word for that.

    An edition? What would be a word for a newspaper or magazine? It doesn't matter it it's a daily or weekly.

    Re: organization that publishes newspapers

    except - maybe - something like a "news conglomerate". I'm thinking of Rupert Murdoch, et al.
    Thanks for making the question clearer, Dave. My initial response was way off.
