Enough already with ‘mediums’
“Two senior Los Angeles Times editors were given new responsibilities today as part of an effort to create a 24-hour newsroom serving multiple mediums.”
The blunder, of course, is the inappropriate use of “mediums” as a plural of the word medium.
As everyone in the media business ought to know, media is the plural of medium.
Thus, television is a medium. A newspaper is a medium. Together, they are media, not mediums.
The only time the word “mediums” is appropriate is to describe a gathering of psychics.
