The Biker at the Zoo

 A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC 
when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. 
Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket 
and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her under the 
eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage, and hits 
the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back letting 
go of the girl; and, the biker brings her to her terrified 
parents who thank him endlessly.  
A reporter had watched the entire event.
The reporter said to the Harley rider, 'Sir, this was the 
most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do 
in my whole life.'
The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, 
the lion was behind bars.  I just saw this little kid in 
danger and acted as I felt right.'
The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go 
unnoticed.  I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's 
paper will have this story on the front page.  So, tell me, 
what do you do for a living and what political 
affiliations do you have?'
The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.'

The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper out of 
curiosity to see if it, indeed, brings news of his actions, 
and reads, on the front page:

  And that pretty much sums up the media's 
approach to the news these days.

Thanks Hal

Not the entire media, Odie. Just the mainstream media. Rupert Murdock's crew would have had a different spin on things.

They would have reported that the hero rode a Triumph, though, since only Scott Walker-types ride Harleys.

Fredd, I think you're on to something.

Yep, this sounds about right for the left wing media. They have their agenda and reporting the truth doesn't fit into that agenda for the most part.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Ain't it the fricking truth! Good one buddy!

Sandee, I love making fun of the hated.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, Yes it do.
