The media doesn't hear about people going about their normal daily routines. They hear about the unusual events and things that are newsworthy. If a jackpot winner does something that results in a police report the media will know about it, but even if it's Jack Whittaker the media doesn't know when they make a good financial decision, quietly donate money to a good cause, or fall in love with somebody who loves them and not their money. Tragedy, comedy and drama are all big sellers, but there just isn't much drama in an ordnary life and the media won't know about the normal stuff unless somebody tells them about it.
When you win a big jackpot and go on to live a happy, successful life, how often are you going to call up the media and invite them over to do a story about you?
