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
cuff of her jacket and tried to pull her inside to slaughter her, under
the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumps of the 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 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 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 day the biker buys the paper to see news of his
actions, and reads, on the front page:


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