My news is Extraordinary

If I am sitting at a computer bored with stalking people on facebook for the day, I turn to ABC.com for the daily news. I admit, I do not look at the normal stories about the everyday world, but I look at the odd stories like......WWII Postcard reaches Japan Man.
The postcard reached the man 64 years later. Odd, unusual, newsworthy.
"Whether the subject is love, birth, weather or crome, journalists' tastes inevitably run toward the unnatural, the extraordinary," said Stephens in chapter 8.
I believe that many people would rather read a news story like this, rather than another article on the presidential election, a year from now.
It's fascinating to see a change in the everyday news routine.
Another curious/unusual newsworthy story:
Religious sitings of Pope John Paul II
