Usage Note: The etymologically plural form media is often used as a singular khổng lồ refer to lớn a particular means of communication, as in This is the most exciting new truyền thông since television. This usage is widely regarded as incorrect; medium is preferred. A stronger case can be made in defense of the use of media as a collective term, as in The truyền thông has not shown much interest in covering the issue. As with the analogous words data và agenda, the originally plural khung has begun lớn acquire a sense that departs from that of the singular: used as a collective term, media denotes an industry or community. Thus the example sentence given here would not be appropriately paraphrased as No medium has shown much interest in covering the issue, which suggests that the disinclination abides in the means of communication itself rather than in its practitioners. If truyền thông media follows the pattern of data và agenda, this singular use may become entirely acceptable someday. But despite its utility, many people still regard it as a grammatical error.
