In the media module when we upload an image it asks us how to store a file (as public or private). But I don't want to show the user these options. Moreover, the user should not see that option box and the file uploaded should be saved as public file only. How can I implement this?

Upgrade to the latest 2.x version of the media module and file entity module.

There is now admin configuration at the file system settings page.

In my opinion the configuration ability still needs some improvement but it dos the job for now.
