April will be happy to hear this one!

Trump said to have promised tabloid boss ambassador job 

New York Post July 19, 2016 by Keith J. Kelly

Insiders at American Media, home of the National Enquirer and Star, are buzzing that Chief Executive Officer David Pecker, a well-known booster of Donald Trump, has been promised an ambassadorship if and when Trump is elected president.
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.
“It’s something people have been talking about for weeks,” said an insider.
Pecker, through a spokesman, dismisses the rumor: “It’s a ridiculous claim.”
The CEO does acknowledge that he has been pushing favorable Trump covers — and anti-Hillary covers — because that is what readers want.
“Our readers have clearly spoken and they want more news about Trump and his vision for America.
The pro-Trump and anti-Hillary covers have seen newsstand sales pop 23 percent, Pecker said. “That is the only poll data that I care about.”
The only bright spot for April is that he is going to be appointed the Ambassador to Libya.

Don't be embarrassed. It is ok to hate the National Enquirer.

Losers read it. Losers. People who are losers. Winners do not read the National Enquirer.

Hey -anything negative about Hillary - all good.

Tell it to John Edwards and Gary Hart.

Don't be an elitist. Lots of people enjoy the Enquirer. My idea of a great dessert is not a Moon Pie and a Mountain Dew but I don't look down on the people who enjoy it.

The Enquirer actually broke some big stories. Gary Hart. John Edwards. The bastard child that Hillary had with the Bat Boy.

You need to get with the common people if you want to be part of the New Republican Party. Otherwise it is just gonna be you, George Will and Ted Cruz.

Who doesn't at least look at the cover when on the supermarket checkout? What I miss is the Weekly World News, now they had covers.

Troop, wasn't that WWN? They have a whole series of stories and covers about "Bat Boy."

I know I was just busting balls.

World Wide News is my go to rag for political news.

You can't beat the looks you would get when you read it on the subway.

Hipsters don't know shit about irony. Just sayn'

David Pecker pegs my BS meter.

But it's real. How did he ever survive adolescence?
