Mass Media

Planes, Trains and Automobiles , spectacular crashes, dying on tall mountains make the news. Events with lots of people. Old men falling off their bikes is nowhere near as big as falling off a mountain unless the old man is really really old.

This value of life by media critique is indeed an odd phenomenon. Lots of refugees die monthly crossing the Mediterranean but a plane blows up or disappears this has far more news value.

Not to forget Celebrity, that is news.
