Founded in 1979, the Weekly World News was an irreverent newspaper that played with sensationalist conventions in tabloid journalism. Iconic in its design and infamous in its content, it ran for twenty-eight years, and at its peak it had a circulation of 1.2 million per issue. It ceased to appear in print form in 2007, but has maintained its cult status with an on-line presence.
This book pays homage to print conventions of yesteryear, while reminding us of the important news that no one else was brave enough to report.
