The more titillating it is (and as a result the less true and accurate, because the truth is usually boring) the more people will want to watch it. The more that the statistics can show are watching, the more advertisers want to put their product out before them, which makes the producers tons of money.
It's a sick game, and the casualty is the notion that we are watching true news.
