    I know this is a sensitive issue, but when a paper like the Daily Mail runs a story, its news.

    When a paper like the Daily Mail runs a story, most people tend to ignore it.

    They'll probably be claiming he caught cancer off an eastern European, or an iPod or something.

    Any Daily Mail story should be taken with a grain of salt.

    The Daily Mail is a supermarket tabloid, yes.

    (or bog roll — so I'm told, not sure about the texture)

    I read in the National Enquirer while standing in line at the Safeway that Obama is gay and had an affair with Colin Powell.

    Now everyone's freaking out over the "news" from the National Enquirer Steve Jobs dying in 6 weeks?

    Are. You. ****ing. Kidding. Me?!

    Un-****ing-believable.

    Everything you read is true, folks.

    Especially from the National Enquirer.

    Eh, I don't trust the Daily Mail that much at all. They publish all sorts of BS.

    Personally, for me, the most telling part is that no other newspaper seems to running with this story anywhere. Which just adds weight to the fact that it's pure BS.

    As the Daily Mail would say, "If only Diana was here..." we'd all be saved!

    At least they've moved on from ‘Hurrah For The Blackshirts’.

    From his posting history, I get the impression that the OP will respond with some degree of restrained celebration when Steve Jobs buys the farm.

    Especially when you write it - that image is in no way related to the National Enquirer. You're worse than you even claim them to be!

    I suspect the fact that the NE focusses on celebrity gossip and slanderous private-life reputation-destroying stories has people confusing 'sleaze' with 'fantasy'. If the NE went after politicians and corrupt govt or even corporate officials with equal gusto, like the mainstream media used to before they sold out, they'd be hailed as one of the nation's leading lights of the free press and truth.

    This here is a more genuine example of the sort of absolute total BS lies the National Enquirer runs with, otherwise known as 'the facts':

    Lost in Space

    Remember when the tabloids would feature pictures of outer-space creatures in congress?

    How could we have known the stories were true?

    You mean if anything that is printed in the Daily Mail is actually a true story, that would be news, right?
