Yesterday, what did murderers, rapists and politicians do?

Every year, the Union Budget is presented on February 28. The news television channels are full of nothing but the budget on that day and the next. On March 1, all the newspapers have little else except budget related news.
And it makes me wonder: what happens to news on other happenings?
Is the news not made at all?
Do murderers not murder, and politicians not misbehave, children not fall into wells, worms not find their way into chocolate, pesticides not adulterate the colas, onion prices not go up, farmers not commit suicide, courts not pass judgement....
....or is it that they all do happen, and these stories are consigned to the dustbins of history?
