Niggle, quibble, nitpick

Today there was a blurb in the NYTimes on-line that read blah blah blah "... the media has given him." "Media has," singular verb. Used to be one medium, 2+ media, medium is, media are, or medium has, media have in the instant example. Everyone took media to be a plural form. Apparently that usage has become, even for the usually punctilious Times, another relic of a picky past.
