There's nothing you can do about it, except for not reading these articles. Tabloids are simply more popular than serious newspapers. It's been like that for decades and it won't change as long as people keep reading this stuff.

These aren't coming from tabloids.  They're coming from so-called serious news sources of various types.

The line between tabloids and serious newspapers isn't always clear, as tabloids also do more serious stuff occassionally and the serious papers also do stuff like this sometimes.

Nonetheless, the reasoning is the same: every news source wants as many clicks/reads as possible, so all of them write about things people want to read (in varying degrees, of course). Sensationalism and clickbait will never not be effective.
