    Three years of preps is all you need to set up to the bigs, folks.

    Sheesh, and people say there are no good newspaper jobs left anymore ...

    Cultivate stories that will lead to major national stories?

    Yeah, you know, the tooth fairy, bigfoot and my imaginary friend Sam.

    Actually, the National Enquirer has been breaking actual stories in recent years.

    I don't know about this, but I have a hunch they're more interested in the second part of "accurate and interesting" than the first.

    It's easy to rope the Enquirer in with the bigfoot/martian tabloids.
    But they are legit in many ways.
    They've got nut-cutting reporters there who would destroy a lot sports beat people.

    Have a friend who works there. J-school grad, hard-driven reporter. Would be good on any metro staff.

    The National Enquirer isn't and never has been a bigfoot, alien-baby tabloid. Although it was more seedy about 20 years ago, it has evolved into a publication every bit on par with People and Us.

    Sounds like someone is trying to legitimize his decision to subscribe. I don't remember ever seeing a newspaper article that stated, "As first reported in the National Enquirer...." Although, to be fair, a nut-cutting reporter quoting "a friend of a friend" isn't a big leap from a sports scribe quoting "someone familiar with the deal wishing to remain anonymous."
     
  9. Weren't they the first publication to receive an Anthrax letter back in 2001? And I forget which one, but some major national story was broken there. It may have been Bill and Monica.

    I think the New York Times refered to the NE as first reporting something before as well... I'll have to look.

    The Enquirer made its first real claim to membership in the mainstream media during the O.J. investigation and trial, when it beat the shit out of pretty much everyone when it came to breaking news (and believe me, absolutely everyone was covering that story). Since then, I'm sure there have been other instances in which the Enquirer has been out front on a story, though I can't tell you any specifics because I don't read it and have little interest in its subject matter. It ain't the New York Times and it never will be (though I believe the NYT has been caught in more outright fabrication the past few years than the NE), but it ain't the Weekly World News, either. They operate close to the edge, but I'm sure they have some kick-ass journalists working there, too. Hell, if I had the contacts in the entertainment industry -- and if I cared about the entertainment industry at all -- I'd send them my resume in a second. I'll bet they pay great.

    Didn't they break the Clinton/Paula Jones scandal?
