Alternative Media

Any non-mainstream media. For example, fringe right- and left-wing groups may operate their own radio stations or websites. More broadly, alternative media may include any small media outlet that is not controlled by a large corporation or a government. Advertising in alternative media may provide a cheap way to appeal to a niche audience.
