The Globe magazine is supporting the right wing extremist birthers....
American Media owns this, along with many other magazines. I'd like to know why they're supporting this insulting redneck garbage against the President.

1. Well, it is the Globe?
I still really miss the Weekly World News in glorious B&W. Just ain;t the same without the adventures of BatBoy anymore.

4. WWN was great satire, beat the Onion by a mile in my book.
I have a hard time believing anyone didn't see that it was an obviously satirical pub.

7. People could see it was full of baloney, but some didn't realize it was intentionally humorous, IMHO
If you actually read it, it becomes clear these guys are humorists, not just hoaxters or insane wackos. I think a lot of people thought from afar that it was "serious" in its kookiness.

2. Here's info on the CEO of American Media, who owns The Globe....
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 02:39 PM by Sarah Ibarruri
This is from WIKIPEDIA:

David Pecker is the Chairman and CEO of American Media. He is the publisher of National Enquirer, Star, Sun, Weekly World News, Globe, Men's Fitness, Muscle and Fitness, Flex, FitPregnancy and Shape. He has served in his current role at AMI since 1999 and previously served as Chairman and CEO of Hachette Filipachi Magazines. He began his career as an accountant and through aggressive political maneuverings at CBS Magazines rose to V.P., Controller. As the junior of four employees in a partnership, CBS Magazines was LBO'd and then quickly sold to Hachette. He soon after became CEO at Hachette when the other three partners abruptly resigned. His success has been attributed to aggressive tyrannical behavior coupled with a disregard for social norms in business when expedient.

5. Globe is not a magazine, it's a trashy tabloid that's been trashing Obama since the primaries.
