I suddenly had the eerie sensation that we might have ascribed the wrong motive to John Wilkes Booth all this time...

Actually, I think he's got the "popcorn trick" all wrong.  "Gun" is a metaphor.

Perhaps from now on when the messages appear on the screen about not making own sound effects and switching off mobile phones during the film, "please lay down your arms" will be tacked onto the end.

That might be something to do with the fact that "News Value" = "Sensation Value"...and has for several centuries, too.

Indeed.  But is it so wrong to continue to wish for reason and logic to be injected into society at large?  It's a pipe dream, I know, but I still wish for it.

I'm for it, but so long as news services are (of necessity) motivated by a drive for profit and sheer numbers of readers/viewers/listeners, nothing will change there. Perhaps the internet will change something there in the long run, but I doubt it.
