Entertainment over news???

I suppose if people want to see it, news organizations will show it to them?

Videos like these are increasingly likely to appear on the front pages of news organizations that are supposedly to be taken seriously. Those from above appear on the front page of CNN.

Is it any wonder that Americans are so unable to identify what is going on in the world, why we are so easily misled by our leaders (including into war, for example), why we cannot identify other countries on a world map, why we don't know our history, and so on. 

News organizations such as CNN are partly responsible for a celebration of entertainment over news, as well as the dumbing down of America.
