Default True with todays Media...

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 has watched the whole event.

The reporter, addressing the Harley rider, says, 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, what do you do for a
living and what political affiliation 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 to see if it
indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:


U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH!

...and THAT pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news
these days.
