Victim Story: Suzie has been victimized by criminals, the government, or her own stupidity. The point of the story is never that you shouldn't do what Suzie did, but that she is a victim and deserves sympathy, if not in fact government money. And the greater point is, we are all helpless victims here - of circumstance.
Humorous Story: Some oddball who collects the worlds largest ball of string is profiled with humorous music in the background. People sure are funny! And maybe you, too, should be an oddball with a weird hobby! You might get on TeeVee! Perhaps now is the time to start training squirrels to water ski. You might want to look into it.
Heartwarming Story: Patty takes in stray cats, dogs, or children, or goes out and delivers cupcakes to shut-ins. The world would be a better place, if everyone was like Patty! I am not running down Patty, here. But this is not really news (none of it is) it is just a glurge designed to make you feel good. In a world where the economy is tanking, and politicians are having sex, we need more Pattys!
