comment What is the correct possessive genitive for “media”?
I didn't either, but I still think "medias" is wrong, and "media" for the singular is also not good style. Then again, as I said, I'm no native speaker, so I won't downvote on my gut feeling.

@Kris I think that's wrong. Isn't it - technically - one recording medium (although one media is acceptable today), but always two media, never two medias?

Thank you for your answer. As I am not a native speaker, maybe I didn't make myself clear. I was not talking about the media as in news outlets, I was talking about media as in CDs, cassettes, books, etc.. Was I maybe using the wrong word, or is there a better one?

comment What is the correct possessive genitive for “media”?
@mplungjan Thanks for the pragmatic suggestion of reversing the sentence. Why wouldn't there be a difference? Possessive is different for all ordinary english words in singular vs. plural, isn't it? It's not that I don't like "media's", it's just that I'm not sure it's correct. Other plural possessives have the (plural) s before the apostrophe.
