Also, Jake Sisko is a reporter for the Federation News Service during the Dominion War on DS9.
As an aside, some of the people who see the 24th Century Federation as a kind of stealth Orwellian regime point to the Federation News Service as evidence, but there's not much reason to believe it's state-run, or the "official" news of the Federation, any more than the USA Today or the American Broadcasting Company is. It's just a name.
Or maybe the Federation News Service is just the Federation's version of PBS or BBC...
