    Can we get a list of which news sites can be posted on MSM and Non MSM?

    Can we get a list of which news sites can be posted on MSM and Non-MSM? Can anything that is not MSM be put in Non-MSM? There's a ton more of smaller internet sites that I always wonder if I can post in Non-MSM or not.

    I think so far this is right...

    MSM:
    CNN
    NYT
    Fox
    NBC
    WaPo
    The Guardian
    ABCNews
    BBC
    LA Times
    Reuters
    CBS News
    New York Post
    Chicago Tribune
    Washington Times
    independent.co.uk
    WSJ
    msnbc
    apnews

    NON-MSM:
    Huffington Post
    USA Today
    Politico
    NPR
    Breitbart
    Vox
    thehill
    Yahoo
    Newsweek
    Newsmax
    axios
    theweek
    businessinsider
    theweek
    thinkprogress
    buzzfeednews
    rollingstone

    NPR, Businessinsider, Politico, and USA Today need to be moved to mainstream. Washington Times and Fox need to be moved to non-mainstream. I'm a bit iffy on Independent.co.uk

    There was a time that I would have considered The Hill to be MS, but their all-around crap reporting has changed my mind. Also, I'm undecided on Axios.

    Okay so:

    MSM:
    NPR
    BusinessInsider?
    Politico
    USA Today

    Non-MSM:
    Fox?
    Washington Times?

    So now I'm even more confused. From the rules

    *BN* - Mainstream Media: A news service whose primary means of distribution is print, broadcast, or wire services. Local newspapers forced to switch to a digital format may aslo be placed here as well as AP stories reposted to the web free of additional commentary.
    Examples Include: CNN, Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Associated Press

    • *BN* - Non-MSM: A news service whose primary means of distribution is the internet or is found in a section of a MSM news service labeled as "Blogs".
    Examples Include: The Drudge Report, Huffington Post, ABC News Blog, YouTube
    BI: I believe is internet only?
    NPR: This is "wire services"? So radio qualifies?
    Fox: They were primarily broadcast until the internet grew.
    Washington Times: Has a printed newspaper.

    Is there some other metric I'm missing here?

    This is why we need a list.

    Having had my share on BN errors, I was advised to use Wiki to determine the origins of a news site.

    I disagree about Fox News. “Mainstream” doesn’t mean unbiased or even fair.
    <-- That is a winky face. If I use it in a post then that means I was more interested in being silly, sarcastic or hyperbolic than being accurate, factual or sincere at that particular moment.

    There isn't a definitive list. The definition as is spells it out pretty well.
