I agree. Judging by the modern nutters I read, it's "the liberal media" or "the conservative media" that get regarded conspiratorially, not "all the media".

Media could be split into opposing alignments, "New Media" (Online stuff) and "Old Media" (TV networks and print). That would provide for some interesting twists.

Works for me. I like the idea of dueling memetic delivery systems.

I like it as well. It makes Media not just another alignment.
