What do you call the media that is not the "Main Stream Media?"


ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, et, al are called the main stream (or as some people call it "Lame Stream") media. What do you call, Fox News, Breitbart, Drudge Report, Alt Right, et al? And how does one distinguish fake news from real news anymore? I noticed now on hub pages, sources for information can be cited and it means nothing to people who would rather not accept the source, even if the sources as are as close as one can get to the facts. Facts are meaningless anymore, because there are so many versions of the same topic or event and people choose to believe what fits their values and beliefs

    What about news that don't make it to the nyt or abc or nbc or cbs? What do you call that? There are many news items that are not reported where others are exaggerated. I put abu graib prison scandal on the top of that list...It was headline new nyt

    Jack: Why is it that the Daily Show and Colbert have noted guests, like Trump, Obama, McCain, Biden, and others of those positions if it is fake news? Their satire is used to point out the fakery and hypocrisy in political deception.

    I totally agree. The media was singled out in the Constitution to be the watchdog over our elected officials. They have a real responsibility at the truth. Without it, wr are all blind. We can't all be investigative journalists.
