Say it ain't so, Bat Boy!

The bete noir of National Enquirer, People, US, and Wall Street Journal - the soon-to-be-late-lamented Weekly World News is going under. Belly up.

Who else is going to cover gems like these:
"Most Irresistible Woman on Earth - To Mosquitoes!"
"Mother Natures Endorses Gore For President"
"Why Moses Wandered in the Desert for 40 Years"

What other schizoid rag would tackle sex, politics, and religion, all in the same issue!

Over at the National Enquirer, they're covering blockbusters such as:
"Lindsay Lohan: Busted Again!"
[Ed. note: Okay, to be fair, every MSM outlet was covering that.]
"Campbell Brown leaves NBC for CNN"
[Ed. note: Besides CNN, who cares? Not even NBC.]

Reuters laments the passing of an archrival: Weekly World News to Close(Aliens not blamed).

Forbes reports that an angel of death has visited Weekly World News, and the world is poorer for it.

International Herald Tribune makes it sound like they're equally saddened, but in reality they lifted the same AP wire Forbes did.

Is there no shame!
