Elite media

The elite media is newspapers, radio stations, TV channels, and other media that influence the political agenda of other mass media. According to Anwar Haneefa, "[t]he elite media set a framework within which others operate." [1]

The New York Times is used as an example of elite media by both Chomsky, a left-wing intellectual, and Bill O'Reilly, a right-wing commentator. [2] The newspaper is in a structural position within the mass media, rather than a particular political agenda.

The term, like its sibling term "liberal elites", may be used by conservatives in a pejorative context.
