    Of course that depends on what the definition of "mainstream" is....

    Rob Reiner Says Trump Is First President ‘Supported By Mainstream Media’
    http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/08/nu...nstream-media/

    During a guest appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday, acclaimed director Rob Reiner claimed that President Trump represented “the first time” that an American President had enjoyed the support of the mainstream media.

    ....Reiner then went on to describe which outlets he was including in his description of “mainstream media,” complaining that “43 percent of the country are getting their news only” from:

    Fox News
    Breitbart
    Sinclair
    Alex Jones

    And while some would certainly question Reiner’s assessment of which outlets constitute “mainstream media,” most would argue that former President Obama had much more support from a much broader range of outlets than President Trump.....

    What dear old' Meathead wants is for every form of media to attack Trump the same way Hollywood and its Elites do.

    what he's sighting ( without really knowing it ) are by and large the Rebel forms of media in this country.

    What he is actually doing is something the left does routinely: changing the definitions of terms as they are generally understood. When he makes his claim about the "mainstream media", people assume the term means what it usually means: NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, etc.

    Most people will not look beyond the title of the article and, if they are liberals, they will believe that the real MSM (listed above) is supporting Trump. Almost none of them will care to look up the Pew study:

    He misses the good old days when the three alphabet soup networks (plus PBS, NPR and CNN), The NYT and WashPost had a near monopoly, with no alternative sources.

    too bad Archie is no longer around to tell meathead to stifle himself before he makes himself a bigger fool than he already is.
