In the news today

Among the leading stories in the news today from mainstream, inner-ring or upper-tier media outlets, are these nuggets:

Kidnapped 7-year-old thrown from bridge 

NBA bust facing 15 years in prison for major gun charges

Georgia cop at DUI stop: 'We only kill black people'

Knife-wielding man in Stockholm stabs police officer in neck, officials say 

Corpus Christi police: Gunshot victim wasn't burglar

Why are these stories "top news" stories? How many of them are things you really NEED to know? Why do they appeal to the news organizations?
