“The World’s Greatest Newspaper” (SCREW)
The Chicago Tribune has been calling itself "The World's Greatest Newspaper" since Chicago first had a world's fair (1893). It would own a newspaper and a television station both with the initials "WGN."

SCREW magazine was founded by Al Goldstein in 1968. Goldstein proudly labeled his sex review 'The World's Greatest Newspaper." The paper limped along until it finally shut down in 2004. Goldstein's bad luck and tragic fall from porn publishing superstardom have made tabloid fodder -- more even than when he was still publishing.

SCREW is thirty. Happy Birthday SCREW! And high ho, Al. I probably won't make it to the Big Apple this year, but I want you to know that our good ol' days of yore are ne'er forgotten, and that except for GayToday, SCREW is, as its masthead so modestly boasts, "The World's Greatest Newspaper."

10 June 1907, Chicago Daily Tribune, pg. 8:
THE TRIBUNE is 60 years old today. From a small sheet in an obscure western town it has grown to be the chief newspaper in a great metropolis and to deserve the title "the world's greatest newspaper."
