The truth may set you free, but finding the truth is like playing tennis. You don't get a hint of it until you've returned the volley about three or four times. The mainstream media counts on the masses never returning what's served up. Journalism today has become a caricature not unlike what Robert Lynd describes by saying "Research without an actively selective point of view is like the ditty bag of an idiot, filled with bits of pebbles, straw, feathers and other random hoardings."

PREACHER TO BURN KROC
Church Members Will Burn Ray Kroc's photos if proposed McDonald's Restaurant isn't moved to new site.

Reverend Wilson T Bentley of the Cornerstone Baptist Church of Fayetteville, Arkansas had asked that McDonald's Corp. not build on a site adjacent to the church. Now, citing the power of what some call "spiritual blackmail" but which Reverend Bentley has termed "Trinitarian Intimidation Praxis" or TIP, he has rallied his 3,000 member church to burn photos of McDonald's founder Ray Kroc on stakes atop piles of french fries on September 20th, three days before McDonalds is set to break ground on the new store.
"We tried to be civil, but enough is enough," said Reverend Bentley. When asked why the church members didn't want the McDonald's nearby he said that many of their church's families have problems with obesity and that having a McDonald's so close to the church would adversely affect his flocks' spiritual, emotional and physical well-being. "Beside that," said the rotund Reverend Bentley, "everyone knows that people like Kentucky Fried Chicken on Sundays."
McDonald's spokespersons were not available for comment, but an employee asked "what's wrong with Chicken McNuggets?"
