How to fake George Michael’s death, and other tabloid lies


Originally published at:



Who in their right mind goes to the National Enquirer for actual news? I mean, seriously. Isn’t this a bit of a strawman? “Look, everyone, the National Enquirer is publishing fake news”. Well of course they are; that’s why they are a tabloid and not a newspaper. If you are shocked at this revelation, you should not be, and if you are outraged over such behavior, you need to get a grip.

I note with grave displeasure that, from your choice of opinions, you have enlisted your BBS in the service of the Left. Good luck with that. You’ll need it.
