Probably People magazine. I have sooo many tabloid crap that I get in clipping packs from that magazine about Jim.

After the death of Princess Diana...I had to take a long look (although I wasn't buying any tabloids) at the influence of tabloids on people's lives AND deaths.



forgive me being the cynic here.........but the tabloids did NOT kill Diana......it was a car crash .........caused by a drunk driver.......
and Diana courted the press.......She wanted them on her terms.........but it doesn't work like that in the media........it's all or nothing.........when you court the press you have to live by THEIR rules.........if you are private the press eventually get bored.........
Sorry to dissapoint some people but Diana was no 'Queen of Hearts'........i think her overseas image was nauseatingly saintly........
and subsequent truths have revealed an altogether less appealing Diana........however, she was also just a human being...............whose death was a tragedy for her friends and family.....

but the press didn't kill her..............the crash did

We're going to have to agree to disagree. I know the driver was drunk...but they were fleeing the papparazzi.

I'm amazed that people think tabloid info is ok.

BTW............. you get 'People' on subscribtion don't you??.......we don't get that here so i don't know it...........but is IT a tabloid???

I do not consider People to be a tabloid. My understanding of the tabloids is that they are The Star, The Globe, The News of the world, The National Enquirer.

Yea it is a tabloid. Any magazine that has pics of celebs doing things in their personal time is a tabloid. US and In Touch magazines are not newspapers but they ARE tabloids cause they buy pics from the paps and fill their mags withs crap stories. You did not know that Quirks?

I disagree with you. How many times has People been sued for printing absolute crap?

I wouldn't put it in the same category with The Star AT ALL. People has a fair amount of "human interest" stories that have nothing to do with celebs.

Yea but they still buy pics from the paps keeping The paps in business.

I have many stories they printed of Jim. One of them was the story of Jim and Renee going on his jet just so they could make love 1,000's of feet in the sky then parachute back down to land. They talked about that one on Howard Stern 2003(the radio version) Jim laughed like crazy when he heard it.

If this is your criteria..it makes Cosmo, Glamour and Redbook tabloids, too.

Exactly my point........tabloid journalism saturates every publication, it is part of our modern culture......

I think Linda has it pegged.........it was an honest and credible analysis ........... :wink: ...............

Most everything is tabloid. As Linda mentioned we relish the juicy stories. Some, like People, are not all crap. Many are. We censor ourselves. Why? Because it is well known that the object of our fanaticism values his privacy and doesn't want, for instance, speculation on divorces etc. because it cheapens what was precious. If we care about him, we won't.
