I believe its just becuase
1) its one of the largest natural disasters that struck in a long while.
2) it DOES make good news (for those greedy evil corporate execs, its not a death toll they're watching, theyre just watching the ratings.)
3) A large ammount of people are feeling for the people in theyre tragesty, so its showing in all the news coverage.
4) it is news...not much bigger of a news your gonna get. I mean, if you had a choice in what to show.
a) new born baby boy born December 24th.
b) huge sudden tsunami kills over 100,000 people.
what would you choose to show thats more important?
