I do not pay much attention to sensational news articles. Nowadays news is worse on the internet than it was on paper. I don’t even read much internet news. Anybody can publish anything free so they publish all kinds of junk using techniques developed in San Francisco and elsewhere. Problems such earthquakes and homelessness are overstated because such stories serve political interests. I quit watching TV in high school and don’t have a TV. I learned typing in a Newspaper when I was 7 years old and worked in a newspaper for several years beginning at age 13. I still read 6 real paper newspapers occasionally. Paper reading is faster, clearer, and cannot be tracked by internet companies!
It would be useful to take some classes on modern news media and history to understand how you are being manipulated by the news media.
