Alternative Alternative Movies

Since the LA Weekly made it as a cameo location in Rise: Blood Hunter, I wonder how many movies about the alternative press there are. I can only think of Joan Micklin Silver’s 1977 comedy Between the Lines, about a Boston paper very much like the Phoenix. Most memorable moment: the paper’s rock critic (Jeff Goldbum) delivers a lecture to some upper-crust students at a girls college and proclaims, “They say rock & roll is here to stay, but they don’t say where. Not at my place—it’s too small.”  Can anybody think of any others?
