Area Kitty Upset by Mainstream Media Portrayal of Cats
Pickle, a local cat, is furious by the mainstream media’s negative portrayal of his species. ”Cats are often depicted by the media as poor spellers, many times engaged in an activity with some sort of invisible friend, tool or instrument,” said Larry Owens, the cat’s lawyer. ”Pickle feels that he speaks for cats everywhere when he says that he is sick of this damaging stereotype and how it is constantly reinforced by the mainstream press.”
Pickle is seeking a formal acknowledgement of the issue from the Society of Professional Journalists and plans to put together an educational packet entitled “The Rich History of Cats: No LOLing Matter” to be released this fall.
