Media is a catch-all term used to describe all forms of communication. Most often, it is used to refer to television, radio, books, and newspapers (often referred to as the "Mainstream Media") but now also refers to the internet.

[edit] Bias

Often, political bias colours the contents of the media, often dividing the population's political beliefs even further down into the the two main parties, (Labour/Conservative in the United Kingdom, and Republican/Democrat in the United States) ignoring the smaller parties that may have something good to offer (although, in some cases, not so good).
