Re-reading the definitions, I've decided that maybe the Los Angeles Times made the wrong call when they referred to several different types of news media as "mediums." (Maybe they were too hasty, as was I in interpreting the meaning of all this.) Here's the full definition from the Times' go-to dictionary, Webster's New World. Note that it offers separate definitions for the plural of forms of communciation than it does for clairvoyants.
