The New York Times — in a Nutshell

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 New York Times reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the biker says, “Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life.”
The biker 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 from the New York Times, 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 New York Times to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on front page:
I got this e-mail from a great friend, a great American and great Cuban–a Bay of Pigs vet.

  1. The New York Times is an evil blight on the face of America working to undermine and destroy this country in the same way that they managed to already destroy Cuba and continue to try to destroy her victims: the Cuban exiles. They are relentless and diabolical.
    They are also the most AGENDADED newspaper in the world. I’ve seen first hand how they shamelessly lie. For instance, when Castro came to the United Nations back in the late 90’s, I went to an anti-Castro protest, and the NYT’s reported it by grossly undercounting the anti protesters, while at the same time inflating the number of pro-Castroites.
    They should change their slogan from “All the news fit to print” to “All the news [WE] see fit to print.”
