What is "Alternative media?"

The Encyclopedia of American Journalism describes "Alternative Press" like this.

"Although the term alternative press is commonly understood to refer to those publications emerging since the early 1960s that have both championed the rights of groups and individuals, and have stood against the excesses of governmental and corporate power, an alternative press has been in service in the United States throughout its history."
