By its very nature, news is something that is rare, and uncommon. Once it becomes commonplace, no one cares about it. It stops getting ratings, and the news shows stop reporting it. Tesla is getting the focus now because he cars are getting more mainstream, and Elon Musk and Tesla are forefront in people's minds. No one gives a crap about teens driving drunk and getting killed, because it's all too common. Far more kids get killed driving drunk than driving Teslas, it just doesn't make the headlines.
