Dumbing down?

I just discovered a new part of the BBC news website, called NEWSwatch. One of the features they have shows you which are they most popular stories on the BBC News site.

Yesterday the two most popular stories were about a couple who had a pork pie wedding cake (from the UK edition) and one entitled "Chewing Gum can 'enhance breasts'" (from the World edition). It's nice to see the sophistication of the average web user shining through.
