From the Paper:

"Although very few of us would actually admit to it a lot of us must actually be reading the tabloid press because publications like "The National Inquirer" sell hundreds of thousands of copies each day. This is true despite the fact that the average tabloid is full of articles that can in no way be considered to be news. Elaborate stories of alien kidnapping. Elvis everyone. Stories about Princess Diana, who will remain tabloid fodder for decades, one guesses."
