Sex! Gossip! Scandal! For over 60 years, the National Enquirer has pumped out salacious, shocking stories, stretching the limits of journalism and blurring the lines between truth and fiction, with millions of devoted readers snatching it up at shopping market checkouts. Scandalous is the sensational true story of the most infamous tabloid in U.S. history, illuminated with lots of insider testimony—a wild, probing look at how one newspaper’s prescient grasp of its readers’ darkest curiosities led it to massive profits and influence. From its coverage of Elvis’s death (they got an exclusive photo of him in the casket), to Monica Lewinsky and the O.J. Simpson murder trial, the National Enquirer rattled the foundations of American culture and politics, sometimes allegedly using payoffs and blackmail to get its scoops. With fascinating archival footage and revelations as wild as National Enquirer headlines themselves, Scandalous entertainingly examines our obsession with the rich, famous and powerful, and the tabloid that has fed those obsessions for generations of Americans.
