First, it should be noted that the term "media," while found occasionally in the 1930s and 1940s, did not become a commonly used term until about the 1960s: prior to that, the… popular term was "the press." As for who used the press, at first it was almost exclusively the Church (in much of Europe, this meant the Catholic Church), since literacy was not common. The earliest books were compiled by monks, and thus, these first books were religious in nature. Until the arrival of the printing press, the Church controlled what could be published. But once books could be mass produced, more voices and more opinions could be disseminated, and the monopoly held by religious institutions was broken. In the Enlightenment era, a wide range of books and pamphlets began to appear: the authors ranged from poets and dramatists to political writers, scientists, and other scholars. During this time, the people who used the press were those who had ideas they wanted to express to a wider audience. As time passed, and newspapers became more widely available, the press was used by the powerful (to publish articles that reinforced their views and promoted their political, social, or religious beliefs). There was also something called "journalism" that continued to expand, as reporters let the public know more about the news of the day. The press was also used by advocacy groups: women published their own newspapers to demand equal rights and the vote; people who believed slavery had to end published abolitionist newspapers; immigrant Jews, Italians, and others published ethnic newspapers to keep in touch with the old country while remarking on life in their new country. And gradually, as literacy expanded, more politicians began to use the press to help with campaigning: people could now read the ideas that political figures wanted to share. When radio (and then TV) came along, the people using it included preachers, professors, performers, and politicians, all of whom found that broadcasting provided a wonderful way to reach large audiences simultaneously. Preachers used it to promote the views of their religion and to inspire the audience. Professors offered free courses that helped people in distant places to gain more education. Performers were able to create nation-wide hit songs or hit comedy routines and increase their popularity. And politicians did what politicians do-- they tried to get elected, and they used radio (and later TV) to persuade the public to vote for them. These days, we do in fact have "the media" and it pervades every part of our lives. Journalists and reporters still use it to try to keep you informed. Wealthy owners of media empires use it to advance their point of view (just like in the old days, only much more quickly and effectively). Today's media often seem dominated by commercial interests (advertisers use it frequently; and many of the programs are designed not so much to be thought-provoking as to sell products). It is also dominated by political interests (there are entire networks that focus only on one side of issues or try to influence how you vote). Candidates running for office, and organizations (special interest groups, charities, advocacy groups) that want your support also use the media to reach you. But these days, ordinary citizens can also use the media to communicate with the public via blogs and social media like Twitter, or by being guests on certain programs. There are still religious figures using the media to try to convert you (or to get you to donate); there are still educators offering programs to teach you something new; and there are a large number of celebrities who use the media to keep in touch with their fans through performing their music or starring in a drama, or making appearances on variety shows or hosting their own program.

"Crime" has been among mankind ever since first caveman stole his neighbors dinosauer bone.
Because in a "victimless" crime there isn't one particular victim, everyone in the community is a victim in some small part, or the victim is unknown. Example: A man sees a …hooker working a street corner and offers to pay this adult woman for sex. That's prostitution. There is no victim. Both people are willing participants. Or you could say that the "victim" is all the people in soceity who have good morals and who are offended that this sort of thing goes on. Another example: Let's say the law says you cannot possess a gun with an altered or defaced (scrached-off) serial number. You are found with such a gun in your vehicle, and you are arrested. Who is the victim? The gun you have is almost certainly stolen, but we will probably never know who the victim of the theft was. So we call this a "public order crime" because it's closely related to criminal activity. Another View: the firearm violation referred to above is NOT a valid example of a "public order' offense. Probably the two most cited examples of 'public order' offenses are 'Disorderly Conduct" and Public Drunkenness.' Again, there isn't any one specific victim but society as a whole is cheapened and devalued by such public displays. Hence, they are crimes against the "public order."
