Oliver Darcy writes at the Business Insider: 

Billionaire investor Mark Cuban questioned Friday why the Drudge Report and Breitbart aren’t characterized as “elite media” organizations, noting the outlets have a larger readership than many traditional newspapers.

Cuban’s comments came in reply to a National Review writer who mentioned the “elite media” in a story he authored.

The “Shark Tank” star asked “who exactly” makes up the group, prompting the author to list The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR and “leading opinion journals.”

Cuban then questioned why prominent conservative outlets weren’t included in the list, noting many have “bigger audiences” than the organizations the author listed.
