I wrote 'That is a journal'. I do not think that should not be accepted.

Newspaper - krant, nieuwsblad, dagblad.

Journal - tijdschrift (magazine), dagboek (diary), journaal, dagblad. Your answer would seem to be acceptable then.

Well when the word "Krant" was introduced it was meant for newspaper. But remember this is beta so problems will occur

In most of the languages im studying, journal does mean newspaper, so that might be why they put it as a definition
