What is the ‘legacy media’

In an emailer Tuesday afternoon, executive director Wayne Hoffman of Idaho Freedom Foundation warned readers and backers that the organization's Freedom Index was under attack by the "legacy media." I didn't think much about it, other than I wasn't sure what he meant. I suppose it's derogatory, like "lame stream media" or "dead-tree media." I shrugged it off while reporting the contents of the emial here. However, I received this question from a HucksOnline reader this AM: "I don't understand what "legacy media" is supposed to mean."
