Does anyone have suggestions about the best phrase to refer to the mainstream press in French?

By mainstream press I mean the big popular newspapers that are well-read and well-respected.

    So "la presse généraliste" ? I thought this thread was discussing the difference between specialist subject press and general press whereas what I'm interested in is the difference between mainstream media (newspapers with a good readership and reputation) and smaller more radical media.

    I would have thought that a radical newspaper not very well read could still be généraliste because it discusses news and not some other specialist topic?
