8. It is directly attributed to TV.
Most Americans watch a lot of TV. Most TV is not about reality of World Politics. Most TV is pure Entertainment. Most people can rattle off names of movie and musical stars but don't even know who members of Congress or SC members are. That is but one example of the ignorance. The Oscars, MTV Awards and Emmys are more important to most Americans than the Nobel or Pulizer. Anyone who has watched Leno's street interviews can readily see how ignorant and uneducated millions of Americans are. The importance placed upon other info aside from Entertainment is extremely high.
