Most of the stuff in the media-* doesn't have anything to do with "the
media" - whatever that is.
Media likely stands for multimedia - generally referring to anything
that has to do with sound, graphics, video, etc. I doubt that the
jsmath font has anything to do with "the media," but it is a font, and
fonts have to do with graphics, and graphics are part of multimedia.
If we REALLY want to move I guess we can do so, but I don't think that
the category was supposed to be suggestive of the news or entertainment
