What makes News?

​When there are children in so many parts of the world who have nothing to eat, that is not news, it seems just normal. When some homeless people freeze to death or starve on the street doesn’t make news. These things  become normal.

On the contrary, when the stock market drops ten points in some cities, it constitutes a tragedy. It becomes a news. 

Someone who dies is not news, but lowering income by ten points is a tragedy. (Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy)

Where are we heading too?
