Mainstream Media

Mainstream media (MSM) are those media disseminated via the largest distribution channels, which therefore represent what the majority of media consumers are likely to encounter. The term also denotes those media generally reflective of the prevailing currents of thought, influence, or activity.

Large news conglomerates, including newspapers and broadcast media, which underwent successive mergers in the U.S. and elsewhere at an increasing rate beginning in the 1990s, are often referenced by the term. This concentration of media ownership has raised concerns of a homogenization of viewpoints presented to news consumers. Consequently, the term mainstream mediahas been widely used in conversation and the blogosphere, often in oppositional, pejorative, or dismissive senses, in discussion of the mass media and media bias.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mainstream_media

An owner-occupier (also known as an owner-occupant or home owner) is a person who lives in a home that he or she owns. It is a type of housing tenure. The home of the owner-occupier may be, for example, a house, apartment, condominum, or a housing cooperative. The immovable property of the owner, which includes the home and the land upon which it sits, is known as the real estate.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeowner)
