As one who works with the people and their media wants I will say for a huge number of folks yes they are.
Kids, teens, adults and seniors all seem to flock to stories of real crime, violence and pain.
The elderly are especially bizarre. They load up on murder media one day then come in the next to load up on Jesus media.
So many people do this that I dont know if it's odd to be into death and pain or to not be into death and pain.
Just look at the popularity of those Dateline: Murder in Your Town type shows and the success of all those "Man with a van will kill your baby"
For whatever reason a lot of people are drawn to misery.
