The media are corporations that have a market: other businesses that advertise through the media. The media are selling their advertisers a product, namely readers and audiences.
From an institutional point of view that is what the corporate media are: enterprises out to make money, like other businesses.
Their behavior is rational. They reflect the interests of their owners.

The media are a tool for constraining political debate within limits that serve the interests of the ruling elite by controlling our understanding of what is politically possible.
Noam Chomsky
