Controversial Buzz About Why the National Enquirer and Star Tabloids Have Been Running More Pro-Trump and Negative Clinton Stories Lately

Jul 20, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A new report cites insiders at American Media, which owns the tabloids National Enquirer and Star, saying the buzz for weeks has been that the reason the papers have been running a lot of pro-Trump and anti-Clinton stories lately is because the company’s CEO, David Pecker, was promised an ambassadorship if Trump wins the presidency.

“The coveted international post would be offered, went the buzz, in exchange for continued positive coverage of Trump and continued negative stories on Hillary Clinton,” The New York Post reports.

Pecker, whose support for Trump is well known, denied the rumor, saying through a spokesman, “It’s a ridiculous claim,” and adding that the real reason is because readers have demanded pro-Trump stories. The report quotes the spokesman saying: “Our readers have clearly spoken and they want more news about Trump and his vision for America.”

Pecker indicated that sales have gone up 23% when pro-Trump and anti-Hillary covers grace the publications.

  1. The Enquirer and Star have always pandered to the lowest common denominator, so it seems only fitting that when it comes to politics, they’d stay with pandering to the lowest common denominator, and the lion’s share of those folks are definitely for Trump.

  2. Spoken like a true loyal reader of The Enquirer and Star.
