Well, news tends to have a negative bias. News is generally about something out of the ordinary. Sometimes this is something extraordinarily good happening, but usually it's something extraordinarily bad that gets and holds peoples attention. For example, "Woman doesn't die by avoiding accident" or "Men decide not to get into fight at bar" isn't usually news.

It's more than just the negative aspects, too. It seems that too many "news" sources misrepresent facts, make up 'facts', present opinions as facts, or keep repeating the same news, blowing it out of portion. So much "news" is really non-news.
