What I find curious is that if she were being charged with copyright infringement she wouldn't be able to argue that she:
"is [not] affiliated with any newspaper, magazine, periodical, book, pamphlet, news service, wire service, news or feature syndicate, broadcast station or network, or cable television system. Thus, she"
... can't possibly be considered a publisher and can't be considered as having republished anything.
I think having a website is in of itself a news/opinion publication and that should be enough to qualify her as a reporter for said website.
