If it bleeds, it leads.
No one talks about the plane that lands.
The news doesn't exist to talk about the 1000 ordinarily beautiful things that happen every day but to talk about the 1 exceptional ugly that happens on a semi-regular basis.
But, don't just blame the news. The 1000 ordinarily beautiful things aren't usually the things that we get together with family and friends and start talking about. Or think too much about.
And that's the challenge. Create them. Talk about them. Focus on them. They are everywhere.
