The elite media is newspapers, radio stations, TV channels, and other media that influence the political agenda of other mass media. According to Noam Chomsky, "[t]he elite media set a framework within which others operate." 
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.  The newspaper is in a structural position within the mass media, rather than a particular political agenda.
