90% of news headlines
- A lot of people died in some relatively uncommon way.
- Someone relatively uncommon died.
- Some rich bastard did something bad to women/children/the poor (if combined with 1. its probably world historical news)
- Some sick bastard did the same (see point 3.)
tldr; Something in the world was broken, has just broken, or will break soon.
As such, I guess, news headlines are an invitation to repair.
