It wasnt just the media, the bands that are now called classic rock like Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Van Halen etc were referred to as heavy metal back when I was in grade / high school in the 70's. It was common place.
Noone would remotely call them metal now. The definition of metal has long since changed. Even the catchphrase now is metal instead of heavy metal.
