"OUR NEWS MEDIA AT WORK"!!!!!!!
Subject: TODAY'S PRESS
A man is walking by the Berkley, California 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 devour her, right in front of the little girl's screaming parents.
The man runs to the cage, 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 man brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A reporter has seen the whole scene, and addressing the man, says: "Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life."
"Why, it was nothing," said the man; "really, the lion was behind bars and I knew God would protect me just as He did Daniel in the lions den long, long ago. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt was right."
"I noticed a bible in your pocket," said the journalist.
"Yes, I'm a Christian and was on my way to a bible study," the man
"Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you
know, and tomorrow's paper will have this on the front page."
The journalist leaves. The following morning the man buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the first page:
"Right Wing Christian Fundamentalist Assaults African Immigrant and Steals His lunch."
"Just blame Sixto"
Isn't that the truth?...
