Do people watch or read their local news for the "Jerry Springer type" of stories that often available?

why do people want to read about the latest gun shooting, murder, robbery, drug dealing, child abuse, auto theft, etc and know about the Jerry Springer types of people that are often doing these crimes?

IS IT MAYBE FOR SAME REASON PEOPEL ARE ATTRACTED TO THE "JERRY SPRINGER SHOW"? WHAT IS REASON?

    Crime has sold newspapers since the beginning of time. The old joke "If it bleeds, it leads" is just as accurate today as in 1920

    No one I know of watches Jerry Springer. If they do they are watching it ironically because none of it is real.

    Which suggests the news you are talking about is not real either, right?
