What makes the news vs. what doesn't

Philadelphia Inquirer pope visit story
From the 12/8/15 Philadelphia Inquirer, page B-6.
When the pope blesses a sick kid and the kid gets better, it's a miracle that goes on page one. When the kid dies, which is far more often the case, it gets buried on B-6, if it's mentioned at all.
