Is the media bubble that Americans live in an intended tool to keep us complacent consumerists?

Question by Chris M: Is the media bubble that Americans live in an intended tool to keep us complacent consumerists?
Do the corporations who control the mainstream media in the U.S. make a conscious decision to keep Americans uninformed and disinterested in actual news (unbiased journalism from a global perspective) by instilling a standard of complacency and narcissism for them to profit from? Or is the relatively new phenomenon of “entertainment news”, and the scaling back of foreign bureaus an indirect result of the corporations being solely focused on profits at the expense of real journalism?
