What is Frum News

There are websites and blogs that report the news to the frum orthodox Jewish community, they call themselves frum news websites. In an attempt to get more hits and lure traffic some of these sites have added content under the banner of frum news. Sadly it aint News and it aint Frum. Its pure entertainment and some of these postings are questionable lacking tznius and dont belong on a frum website. The point of the frum sites is to filter out the shmutz of the  secular media and cover the news that pertains to the Frum Jewish community. Posting entertaining  clips of the latest viral videos has nothing to do with frum or news. Is there a heter for this content? why is TV assur but watching non stop entertaining youtube videos appropriate for the frum news websites?
