...and you were wondering...
How the Media Really Works?
Two little boys in Boston were playing baseball vacant lot when one of them was visciously attacked by a rabid Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the other boy ripped a board off of a nearby fence, wedged it into the dog's collar and twisted it, breaking the dog's neck.
A newspaper reporter from the Boston Herald witnessed the incident and rushed over to interview the boy. The reporter began entering data into his laptop, beginning with the headline:
"Brave Young Red Sox Fan Saves Friend
from Jaws of Vicious Animal."
"But I'm not a Red Sox fan," the little hero interjected.
"Sorry" replied the reporter. "But since we're in Boston, Mass, I just assumed you were." Hitting the delete key, the reporter began again:
"John Kerry Fan Rescues Friend
from Horrific Dog Attack."
"But I'm not a Kerry fan either," the boy responded.
Obviously becoming irritated, the reporter barked, "I just assumed everybody in this state was either for the Red Sox or for John Kerry and Teddy Kennedy. What team or person do you like?"
"Well, I'm a loyal Texas Ranger fan and I have always really liked George W. Bush," the little boy responded.
Hitting the delete key, the reporter began once again:
"Arrogant Little Conservative Bastard
Murders Beloved Family Pet."
