* [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] but ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' really hates the movie industry if maybe not movies in general. The backstory states that one of the reasons Los Santos is suffering economically is that video games and TV have edged out the movie industry.

But this relationship is sometimes too complicated for a full and accurate portrayal in fiction. And thus we have the polar opposite of NewMediaAreEvil. Many works portray old media institutions (newspapers, radio, TV networks) as ignorant, malicious or both. The classic example of this trope is the stodgy old white guy railing against bloggers, webcomics, and anyone not under the influence of the brainwashing satellites owned by LouisCypher, S. Atan, and RupertMurdoch. Expect "get off my lawn"-type comments to come up rather frequently.

* ''Film/CitizenKane'' is one of the earliest criticisms of Old Media in the form that it exists today. Note that Kane himself is a thinly veiled version of William Randolph Hearst -- the spiritual godfather of Ted Turner and RupertMurdoch. Keep in mind that Welles did slip in some delicious multi-level irony with the quote, "Don't believe [[Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds everything]] you hear on [[NewMediaAreEvil the radio]]!".

* ''Film/MeetJohnDoe'' has the cynical portrayal of newspaper owner D.B. Norton, who's only interested in political power. [[spoiler:He even turns his newspaper against the man he'd previously supported ''in the middle of a political rally'' indicating he'd had plans for if his patsy went off-script.]]
