The modern encyclopedia Wikipedia says, "the term 'mainstream' media denotes those generally reflective of the prevailing currents of thought, influence or activity."
But the opinions expressed by the media are neither widespread nor accepted by the majority of Americans. To call today's national media "mainstream" is inaccurate. They are better described as the "liberal" national media. Regardless, the term "mainstream" should be dropped.
According to a Gallup poll, 55% of Americans have little or no confidence in the national media to report fully, accurately and fairly. Americans are right to be skeptical about the news they receive.
How can something be considered "mainstream" if the majority of people lack confidence in it?
Journalists and the public have very different views regarding illegal immigration, for example.

There is noting mainstream about any of them.
Now that they receive all of their marching orders from the White House and the DNC, I prefer state run “media”.
brilliant, wouldn’t it be great if they were always referred to as the Liberal Media
I’ve been calling them the Left-Stream Media for years.
There is nothing 'Liberal' about them. They are leftist, butt kissing shills for the DNC.
How about: “Wholly-owned subsidiary of the DemocRAT Party?”
"Liberal media" is not a superior descriptive term, because the MSM has nothing but contempt for classical liberalism.
Stay with what works.
The media and the WH get their goosestep from Media Matters (George Soros funded).
I used to call them “mid-stream” due to the nature of the substance they deliver.
Might start that up again...
The DLEMM - Dominant Liberal Establishment Mass Media - is anything but mainstream.
I agree. I’ve always took the term mainstream modify the term “media”.
The term “liberal” was co-opted by fascist socialist “progressives” as they infiltrated the Democratic party in the early 1900’s.
How about describing them for what they are? The Liberal Agenda Media, or LAM.
STATE RUN MEDIA...
