It takes all of my self-control to keep from visibly cringing when someone replies "I'm (feeling) good" to the question "how are you?" Good is an adjective. To describe yourself as "good," means that you're stating that you're a "good" person, honest etc. The proper grammatical answer is "I'm (feeling) well." Well is an adverb and describes how you're feeling.
Recently someone who reads my articles asked me to correct the verb in a sentence with the word "media." I used the word, and use it frequently, as a collective noun, so the verb (present tense) was singular. He suggested that it be plural. I'm usually very grateful when people catch my typos, but I see/used the word media to represent a group. In Israel, it's very common to write about the media as one power.
The Israeli media has an agenda and isn't embarrassed to push it.By writing in this way about the media, the implication is that the various Israeli media are in cahoots. It's the use of the word "various" to describe media makes it necessary to use the plural verb afterwards.
Just to be safe, I checked with Professor Google.
