Aliens Are Coming

The National Enquirer is a US magazine with a less than stellar reputation for accurate reporting. It specialises in celebrity focused gossip, stories of alien abductions, and sensational crime stories. The celebrity stories are what dominates the front pages. The magazine is sold at supermarket checkouts and runs headlines about  “Oprah’s Cocaine Collapse”, Bush’s affair with Rice, and endless stories on Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie.

Then in January of this year, another speculative piece of nonsense: Michael Jackson is dying – and only has six months to live.  Which means that they scooped the rest of the media by several months. I suppose the laws of probability mean that you must get one story right from time to time. The alternative is that the aliens are really abducting Americans and Jennifer Anniston is both pregnant and adopting a child
