Why is THIS the top story?

USA Today, one of the most widely read newspapers since it is available in every major city in the country, has THIS as its top story today, another "high profile trial" ...

Jodi Arias trial
Why is THIS the most important story of the day, a story about one woman charged with one crime? As the media remains focused on such stories about individual crimes, corporations continue to kill people and receive almost no media coverage.

These stories help explain why Americans are so focused on street crime in spite of the fact that it is NOT the greatest threat to our safety.
