Truth in Journalism

The liberal news media is always spinning stories to their liking…..

A biker is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, 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 seen the whole scene, and addressing the biker, says:
– Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life.
– Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.

– Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s papers will have this on the first page. What motorcycle do you ride?
– A Harley Davidson.

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

“BIKER GANG MEMBER ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH.”

  1. will totally agree that journalism is going in a wrong direction ……….one more thing i wud like to point at is – if by chance there was no motorcyclist to save the girl, then also our dear journalist wud hv stressed on getting a live video of how a hungry n uncontrolled lion ate up an innocent girl.He wud not hv tried at all to save the girl. Next day through his article, he wud be asking for suspension of zoo authorities as they keep lion hungry, did not provide proper protection to visitors……..n might even go to the extent of commenting abt heartlessness of parents who did not try to save their girl(who knows they were her step parents n delibrately wanted to kill her) n other all sorts of non sense stories ……….
    I rally feel surprised n disgusted whenever i see ny news related to real life tragedies …….wat do these ppl do with their cameras when smthng wrong is going on? just cover it so that they can make up a story ……..they won’t even consider the feelings of ppl who suffer n shamelessly carry on with their own filthy business even after the incident …………
