    Default 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".

    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.

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

    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.

    It would be great if you refer to post # 6. Any ideas?

    Sorry Ostap 77 - I was actually writing post seven whilst post six was being uploaded. I had no way of seeing it.
    I am afraid that I do not understand your question. Perhaps someone else can help you.

    If I said corespondents from different editions, would it make sence?
