Most news outlets try to connect their stories to their audience. This can get comically ridiculous sometimes. I watched a clip once I can't find now lampooning Australia's Today Tonight for tying international stories to Australians with an extremely thin thread.

It's similar to how the local news will make a big deal about how some larger story has a "local man" involved. You can always find other stories online if this bothers you, though.
