National Enquirer Lies - Poem by Saiom Shriver
Forests are bulldozed.. animals die
for the National Enquirer's constant lies
To the Enquirer:
George Clooney's never been gay
and Nixon didn't kill JFK
Poet's Notes about The Poem
killed JFK. Cui bono?
1. He planned to abolish the Federal Reserve
2. He planned to end the war in Vietnam
3. He planned to abolish the CIA. Lee Harvey
Oswald was a CIA employee. When Jim
Garrison asked for his records, the CIA said
they'd been accidentally shredded in the copier.
4. He planned to end Israel's nuclear arms.
Generoso Pope, Jr., a former C.I.A. operative, is the founding owner of the Enquirer according to 1 website. Some wonder if the paper was taken over in order to float false stories as a political objective.
Despite the Enquirer's legal tactics of filing copious delays, they have lost many lawsuits because of the cavalier way they wreck people's lives with fabrications. Many times more lawsuits would have been won against the paper if besides proving a reckless disregard of the truth, those lied against had also to prove actual malice.
