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 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."

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

Pointless. I want the 30 seconds of life I used reading this thread back.

Villainize all you want, but I'd be more than happy to take you to some corners of the world where people BEG to have any media that wasn't state run. Oh, and I'm a soldier and don't feel like the media hates me at all. Big -1.

Do reporters even ask this on feel-good stories?

Reporters KNOW these things. Anyone kows a liberal would have wrung his hands calling for help, then afterwords have a full psychiatric work up on the lion to see why he attacked the girl and rehabilitate him. See? Any good reporter can tell if an individual moves instantly to action, he MUST be a Conservative

Yet you wasted time posting a pointless response.

Take a breath and relax. It was a joke (an old joke).
