Response to WhaTHellsgoingonhere (Original post)

15. Colbert Report is over a year off air, both CR and The Daily are in fact 'MSM' as Comedy Central is

 

owned by Viacom, global media hot shot and in fact the 6th largest broadcast and cable company. Can't get anymore mainstream than Viacom. So I have a hard time with saying 'this mega corp is not mainstream'. I do not think that is accurate.
Perhaps by 'MSM' you mean news and commentary programming on cable and broadcast outlets? To me, 'Mainstream Media' is just that, the news and commentary is a part of it, but if you are owned by Viacom, you are in fact Mainstream.

This is not a subject where information from a few years back remains true. This is all in great flux, and the only way to understand it is to look at it as it really is.
