A Case of the Media Creating the News

I have always tried to keep informed of what is going on in the world by watching TV News and reading newspapers.  The former can be depressing as much of the stories are about crime and accidents.  This morning as I watched the Today Show there was a report that Conor Kennedy, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy was arrested for disorderly conduct after a fight at a bar.

What is the big deal here?  There are likely hundreds of arrests each day for disorderly conduct, but since a Kennedy was involved it becomes big news.  The best thing for me to do is just turn off my TV.
