Just off the top of my head, System Of A Down's "Chic-n-stew" from Steal This Album...although that's advertising specifically...and now that I think about it, it's not even saying outright "the media's going down"...

I'll have to think some more...

Duran Duran had a song called "Too Much Information" a while back. Also, see Peter Gabriel's "The Barry Williams Show" (which is not about the guy who played Greg Brady)

Does it get any better than Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry"?

"The Last of the Famous International Playboys" by Morrissey comes to mind.

"It's A Miracle" by Roger Waters, although of course he has a hard time keeping to just one topic per song.
