MSM is a widely-used abbreviation for "Main Stream Media", often used by alternative news readers. Those who believe MSM fail to cover events or to give accurate news coverage, sometimes refer to the main media networks as "Lamestream media". The Editor of the Mathaba News Network, an independent news agency, coined the term "Money Slave Media", alleging that corporate sponsorship and government agency interference mean that they are controlled, or at least influenced by money rather than the persuit of truth and accuracy.
