Here’s another textbook example of the faux-journalism at the Worldnetdaily. The headline reads “FOREIGN MEDIA REPORT OBAMA-MARRIAGE RUMORS: Renew speculation about state of first couple.” The “article” is the first few lines from a report in The Australian, but it’s just a report about American tabloids:
A leading American divorce mediator will visit Washington this week to offer members of Congress advice on ending the “tiresome bickering” between Republicans and Democrats.
If US tabloids are to be believed, she may need to visit the White House first.
Michelle Obama’s extended absence from Washington and a flurry of renewed speculation about the state of the first couple’s marriage are threatening to overshadow her 50th birthday party at the White House on Saturday.
Not for the first time in their 22-year marriage the Obamas are approaching what should be a happy family milestone under a cloud of rampant tabloid innuendo, summed up by a National Enquirer headline: “World exclusive: Obama marriage explodes!”
So this bit of “news” is that the Worldnetdaily is reporting that an Australian news site is reporting that the fucking National Enquirer is reporting something. Probably right next to the headline about the batboy terrorizing Long Island and the 105 pound woman who had a 110 pound tumor removed. It’s not news, it’s the Worldnetdaily.
