* The page image comes from a New York Post article and shows a man about die after being pushed into the path of an oncoming Q train at Times Square station. Needless to say, this caused a whole shitstorm of controversy. [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity Although the image ''did'' temporarily boost the papers sales]]

* Usually true in large cities, to the point where some stations specifically try to [[DefiedTrope avoid this]] and only show positive news in order to distinguish themselves from the competition. An example in {{Atlanta}} is the news channel 11 Alive (branding of NBC affiliate WXIA), which has revamped its image to only show positive news stories.

* "Dirty Laundry" by DonHenley is a biting take on this, and still relevant (although undercut somewhat by the events that inspired it -- Henley's 1980 arrest on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and drug possession).

* Referenced in WeirdAlYankovic's "Nature Trail To Hell" with a comparison to the sort of SlasherMovie parodied in the song ("...If you like the six o'clock news / Then you'll love ''Nature Trail To Hell''...")

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode [[Recap/JusticeLeagueS2E21And22WildCards "Wild Cards"]], the Joker broadcasts a threat to blow up the Vegas Strip unless the Justice League can stop him. As the drama plays out, other news broadcasters pick up the Joker's show... which feeds into his real plan to expose millions of viewers to Ace's [[BrownNote insanity-inducing gaze]].

** Though played straight in ''Discworld/GoingPostal'' and ''Discworld/MakingMoney''; a newspaper called the ''Tanty Bugle'' (after the city's largest prison) got its popularity by reporting on murders, preferably horrible ones. Moist von Lipwig is a bit put out that his inventive but bloodless crimes only merited a paragraph.
