To put it simply, I think it's a psychological trick - by classing the lowest tier as medium they want you to understand that there is still a certain risk in your area that is not low.

After all why make things simple when you can overcomplicate them as well confuse the public, the mainstream media and politicians at the same time?

You're right about journalists not asking the right question - there is one chap, Freddie Sayers, who runs a YouTube channel called Unherd who does seem to ask the right questions.
