"...And That's a Good Thing!"

A recent post on /movies noted an interesting trend among headline writers for film news: ending their opinion article headlines with "and that's a good thing".
I realized that I've noticed a similar trend among headlines in general--across every genre of news. I decided to do a little searching to see just how widespread this is, and...it's extreme.
Every one of these articles is from 2018. I have a feeling the trend began a long time ago. Google Ngrams aggregates data from books, not web articles, but can provide a pretty good estimate for general language trends. Ngrams seems to indicate that "that's a good thing" has spiked since 1995. This graph only uses data through 2007. I suspect the trend has only gotten worse in the decade since.

Headline writers: please stop telling us how to feel.
