German term or phrase: Medien
I have a simple question: Medien in English means "media". In British English this is a plural noun which is usually used in the singular to avoid the ambiguous sense of "medium".

Does this apply to American English as well? "Media is" or "media are"?

Thanks very much,

Joanne
