A Matter Of Opinion

Lewiston Tribune: Goodbye to Last Great Tabloid

In this May 3, 2000, AP file photo, Republican presidential candidate Texas Gov. George W. Bush displays a copy of the tabloid Weekly World News to reporters during a light moment aboard his campaign plane while leaving Austin, Texas.

I blame Elvis Presley. Bigfoot may have had something to do with it, but although he remains a member of the Illuminati, he has lost a lot of clout. He fathered too many children out of wedlock. At 72, Presley is still the king. The fact that most people think he's dead (and those who don't are usually feather-plucking insane) only heightens his power to manipulate events. He is not only a member of the Illuminati, he presides over this group of shadowy conspirators responsible for everything bad from George W. Bush being president to the success of "The Pirate Master." Now Presley and his cabal have killed the Weekly World News. And with it, they may have also killed the last vestige of great and courageous journalism. At least that would be the Weekly World News version of the story. The boring truth is that too many Americans are apathetic and no longer care whether or not Hillary Clinton is dating a space alien or Dick Cheney is a killer robot. The final issue of the Weekly World News rolls off the press Aug. 27. Wear black. This will be a sad day for journalism -- Tom Henderson/Lewiston Tribune.
