What does "News Media" mean here? Does "News Media" include NYTimes, WashingtonPost, FoxNews... all newspapers and other media in United States?

@oristarA,
"Media" means middle. A reporter observes something and reports it to his employer. The employer decides to publicize it, so a news reader reads the story on a tv show, or a printer prints the story in a newspaper. You hear or read the story. Everything between the observation and you is in the middle, so any part of it, or the entire process, is called "media".

In printing, paper and ink are "media". In photography, all the equipment used to bring a scene to your eyes is called "media". On any highway, the line in the middle of the road is called "median". Median is singular and media is plural.

@oristarA,
In this instance, President Trump is referring to any form of media (magazines, newspapers, television, radio) which gives an unflattering report on something he has done. He wants all stories about him and his administration and family to be 100% positive. If it is not done that way, he says they are "failing" or " corrupt " or "fake". Sometimes all of them.
