Special Report. The Media Shark Attack Hoax:

Ladies and gentlemen, the facts are these. Since the infamous New Jersey Shore shark encounter July, 1916 that killed four Americans and injured one prompting President Wilson to hold a special cabinet meeting, the average number of deaths from shark attacks worldwide, that is worldwide, is approximately 70 to 80 victims per year. This is among a world population of over 7.5 billion. The exaggeration by Hollywood and TV networks is and has overwhelmed the public in falsehoods. One is led to believe the dangerous fish kills many hundreds and maims thousands more. Those who know the sea and its experiences with wild life can easily see through this commercial masquerade for profit and thrills among the unknowing that creates a boundless fearfulness within the duped public. More recently it started and stared in Hollywood with the famous 1975 Spielberg thriller, ‘Jaws’ movie related to ‘Don’t go near the water it’s too horrifying’ as to what could happen to you, that doesn’t.

All the Best to you.
