FWIW, a few years ago I wrote the editor at the Weekly World News to ask if I could use that image of Batboy for a blog post on a university’s blog I maintained a while back. The editor (can’t recall the name) got back quickly and nicely assented, asking only for attribution and a link to the piece. My boss shot down the post for unrelated reasons…but I definitely got a thrill from getting a WWN response, tepid or not.

That, and I ran into Biz Markie at an airport in Phoenix once, so basically Life Goals Achieved.

I think the author is conflating those checkout-aisle magaziness with tabloids because their contents are similar enough that it’d be beside the point to draw distinctions between glossy paper and newsprint, or stapled vs. loose-bound.
