No news day

In the business there is such a thing as a "slow news day." You pull out all the local interest stuff and "helpful hints" fillers.

But something happened last week that I've never seen before. I'll call it a "no news day." The oddity of it was that it was a national phenomenon. It's seems that amid all the floods, earthquakes, shootings, and graduations there was nothing to print.

What do I suggest as evidence? Two headlines:
Yearbook photos botched in 'unfortunate lapse'


Little League Player Benched Because Mother Failed to Work Concession Stand

The articles were as newsworthy as the headlines.

Does anyone have any explanation for this?
