NEVER BELIEVE THE MEDIA - Read description for story by 

I was around 10 when this was taken. My young cousin and I had been fishing in the ditch by our house. It had been raining so much that the farmers were worried about getting their crops in. A strange man stopped at the ditch and asked if we would like to get our pictures in the paper. He had us take our polls and stand next a puddle in the field while he took our picture. This is the photo that was in the paper along with his story about having so much rain that children were catching fish in the fields. LIE!!!! This is a scanned image, digitally enlarged and enhanced of the actual newspaper photo from 1953.

    Goodness… besides you and your brother looking so cute :-) its a great example of why the media are never to be trusted. Not only do they love to twist words but I also saw what they could do with pictures in SA!
