Medium and media have the same meaning. The medium refers to the type of way of communication or entertaining someone or the artistic expression or publication of something. The medium of these things always refers to a group of items that fall into this category. If you are talking about one thing, then you use the word medium.

If you are using many of these things, then you use media. This is because the word medium is singular in form, and the word media is plural in form. Most of the time, people only use the word medium even if they mean the plural form. That is because both the term media and medium can be plural, but the word medium is only singular.

This type of bias is a bias of statistics and crowd counts.

A bias is the intentional or unintentional sense for having a preference to one particular point of view or perspective. In this type of bias, numbers are often inflated to make a disaster more spectacular, and therefore worthy of reading about.

Example of such – 75 people were injured in the car accident, can be the same news as only 5 were injured in the accident. This is usually done to make a news story seem worse or better than it actually is.
Hope this helps.

There are many different disadvantages of allowing the newspaper ownership to be concentrated in the hands of a small group. Firstly, when concentrated in the hands of a small group, the authenticity of the news could decrease.

A small number of people are more likely to highlight their own viewpoints based on their own biases in the newspaper, as compared to a large number of people with varying viewpoints. Since a news outlet always has to adopt a neutral perspective, a small number of people are likely to tamper the news as compared to a large group of people.

Citizen journalism has had a great level of impact on the mainstream media. With websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and various other private news blogs going viral on the internet, the traditional media outlets are finding it difficult to stay in the game with their biased reporting.

It has had such an impact, that many people now resort to citizen journalism for getting information rather than on the news outlets.

The media should surely not have access to everything about the government. This is due to the fact that a lot of information that the government possesses is usually very confidential and the information is classified. Media outlets cannot really be trusted, and many of them might end up leaking them either on purpose or through irresponsible reporting.

Hence, it is rather better to let the government and the media operate as two separate free entities rather one having access to the other’s information. This is the only way to allow neutral reporting based on what’s obvious and what is apparent.

With respect to ethics, the old media which is comprised of print, radio, and television does not have a lot of different from the new media which comprises of social media and news outlets that exist on the internet. Even though journalism and reporting starting out with the purpose of being totally neutral, it does not follow the same code of ethics anymore.
