    What is the right way to write this sentence. Do the media tend to be biased in certain instances? or Does the media tend to be biased in certain instances?

    Re: uses of does and do

    "Media" is plural therefore, "Do" is correct, but in the U. S. it has been my experience that most often you will hear "Does the media....." or a singular form of the verb with "media".
