Default Distorted news

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.



An excellent example of how our "news?" is distorted!!
