      I assume MSM = Main Stream Media? If so, your comment is broadly correct , especially in the past two decades.

As late as 1991, his book Making Peace With the Planet was favorably reviewed in the New York Times by no less a luminary than Stephen Jay Gould.  So although the media mostly ignored Barry Commoner, as they almost always do with radical critics of capitalism, there were times when his message broke through.
