Dont we all hate irresponsible Media ?

I've had enough watching news on TV ! Times Today .. TV18 ... Blah blah .. all yellow journalism .. makes me feel all yellow !
I cant but compare the urge for the media to sell new to some old joke I barely remember .. Its something like this ... ( Things in italics are real .. Staements in bold are what the media (newspaper) says . )

The pastor was very fond of his donkey and entered it in the race and it won ! And entered it again .. and it won again .
News paper says : Pastors Ass out front !

Bishop gets pissed off . He forces the Pastors donkey to get out of the race.
News paper says : Bishop scratches pastors ass.

Bishop is furious .. Asks the pastor to get rid of it . Since its so dear to him, he gives it to the nun.
News paper says : Nun has the best ass in town.

Bishop is pissed off again .. and asks Nun to get rid of it . Nun sells to a farmer.
News paper says : Nun sells her ass for $50.

Bishop is pissed off again ( yeah as always ) asks the nun to buy back the donkey and let it free in the wild ..
News paper says : Nun announces her ass is wild and free.

Now you be the judge ...

He becomes drunk on the cologne, and his mother finds him the next morning, in a puddle of his vomit, in a cove of the bay where drowning victims are known to wash ashore" - Love in the time of Cholera
