Hi there,

The word media is the plural form of the word medium (taken from Latin) but it is now acceptable to use it as a collective noun in the singular, like family, staff etc. Many have even started to use medias to represent the plural. But the word is conservatively considered plural and in other circumstances it is correctly used in the singular. If on an SC question there will probably be another hint telling you how to treat it, as a plural or a collective noun.
