How Many More Times Does The Enquirer Have To Prove Itself Before People Stop Dismissing It?

It truthfully scooped the rest of the media that Dick Morris was ordering hookers while advising President Clinton.

It truthfully scooped the rest of the media on Rush Limbaugh’s addiction to pain killers.

It truthfully scooped the rest of the media on Jesse Jackson fathering a love child.

[Updated addition] It truthfully scooped the rest of the media when it published a photo of O.J. Simpson wearing Bruno Magli shoes – a critical piece of evidence in his murder/wrongful death trials.

It truthfully scooped the rest of the media on John Edwards’ affair.

Yet people are still disgracefully allowed to dismiss this great paper as merely being ‘tabloid trash’ that is not worth believing.

Some of these stories might not have even been reported at all had it not been for the Enquirer. Yet there are people out there that would rather have the truth swept under the carpet of history than admit that the Enquirer is a legitimate news outlet that is running circles around other national papers.

It is astonishing that some people still give the benefit of the doubt to lying, scum-sucking politicians over The Enquirer. Most other papers in this country should take lessons from it. The Enquirer is a national treasure – one of the few remaining fearless bastions of truth left.

Still wanna bet that it’s wrong about the ‘love child’ angle to the Edwards story?
