: When the media quotes someone they often introduce the expression with a phrase or two that include the word "expert". I just read something of this sort on nytimes.com [Dr. Somebody, an EXPERT, on Iran at the University says....bla.bla bla..]. How does one come to be designated as an "expert".

You get qualified as a pert and then resign.
