The cat killed and ate the mouse. That’s the whole story. Let’s see how this news might be reported to the public from the standpoint of the left, the elite media, and the right, Fox News and talk radio. As seems to be the case in events like this, no verification of the actual crime was ever pursued. The story was just made available to the media by anonymous sources.
Information has reached the newsroom of a recent tragedy. A mouse, from all indications an innocent victim, was reportedly killed and then eaten by a mighty and cunning predator. The mouse, in an effort to feed his hungry family and provide a better life for them, broke into the home of a wealthy Wall Street banker. It’s important to know the mouse was hungry and was only eating scraps the rich homeowners and their cat would not eat. Upon discovery, the innocent victim mouse was pounced upon by the stronger and better equipped cat, dispatched and eaten by the greedy predator. It’s clear to this reporter that if the cat had been better cared for by his wealthy owner this tragedy could have been averted. Instead another innocent victim, one who could have possibly become a contributing member of rodent society, has forever been removed just to satisfy the greed of the fat cat. The wealthy owner, when asked to comment, said only cats do what cats do and I am grateful the mouse has been removed from my house. Grateful? Really? Grateful? We here in the newsroom are saddened by this tragic event.
So much for the elite media. Now for the other side.
Information has reached the newsroom of yet another illegal breaking and entering and its justifiable results. Unknown sources have reported to us that a mouse, by all indications an illegal alien, has attempted to subvert our system and steal the resources of a hard-working family and their beloved pet. This illegal mouse was spotted by the resourceful and diligent cat who then defended his domicile and was further rewarded by a tasty morsel. To those who attempt to defend this mouse it should be noted he was not alone. He was attempting to find a new home for his entire family. And, by the way, he had not just one family but many, many families and none by benefit of marriage. It’s reported he has sired as many as 50 or more offspring and all of them are now continuing in their father’s illegal footsteps.
The cat’s owner, a local businessman currently employed by a family owned and operated neighborhood-friendly bank, was justifiably happy with his pet’s ingenuity and skill. His comment, “If we had more capable and aggressive cats, this would be a better place to live. Vermin everywhere should take notice. We will not put up with your illegal activities.” We here in the newsroom extend our congratulations to the owner and his fine cat. Our future is indeed brighter because of this tremendous act. It gives us all renewed hope for America.
The news was that a cat killed and ate a mouse. That is not the story here. The story is how news is reported by different media. It’s therefore incumbent on all of us to be very careful with what is reported as news and to cull out what is opinion and agenda from both sides of issues. To media of all sorts, listen up. Report the news as news and I will formulate my own opinion. I don’t need your help.
