Why I despise the liberal media

This is a joke [thanks Bruce], but the idea is based on countless examples of fact...

A Harley rider is passing 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 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'm a journalist from the New York Times, 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 US Marine and a Republican."

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:

Did you, perchance, catch The Daily Show's visit to the New York Times on a recent episode?

I did too. It's a sign of the times when a "comedy journalist" can hand the ass of the editor of one of the words major newspapers to him.

"How many of the nest stories in here detail events that hppened today?"

"Erm... eh... none"

And not just any comedy journalist. Jason Jones, the frat-brotheriest of all the comedy journalists!
