“Remember when we used to get our ‘fake news’ from the National Enquirer instead of CNN, NBC…”

Donald Trump was elected U.S. president on November 8, 2016. He did not get along well with the mainstream media, and he called CNN (and others) as “fake news.” Many people previously associated the term “fake news” with the National Enquirer, a supermarket tabloid magazine.

“Remember when fake news was just called the National Enquirer and we were totes cool with it? #TheGoodOlDays” was posted on Twitter by stvnndrw.exe on November 27, 2016. “I’m so old I remember when the only fake news you had to worry about was National Enquirer “ was posted on Twitter by •Sassi• on January 14, 2017. “Remember when we used to get our ‘fake news’ from the National Enquirer instead of CNN, NBC, and CBS? Pepperidge Farm remembers” (shown on an image, using the meme from Pepperidge Farm bakery commercials) was posted on Twitter by Michael Nöthem on June 17, 2017.

“From Facebook: I’m old enough to remember when the only fake news was the National Enquirer” was posted on Twitter by B𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐎’𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐥l on August 10, 2020. “I’m so old I can remember when the only fake news was the National Enquirer” was posted on Facebook by “Asking for a friend” later on August 10, 2020.


Wikipedia: National Enquirer
The National Enquirer is an American tabloid newspaper. Founded in 1926, the newspaper has undergone a number of changes over the years. As of April 18, 2019, The Washington Post reported that the National Enquirer was being sold for $100 million to James Cohen, CEO of Hudson Group.

The National Enquirer openly acknowledges that it will pay sources for tips, a practice generally disapproved of by the mainstream press.[citation needed] It has also been embroiled in several controversies related to its catch and kill practices and allegations of blackmail. It has struggled with declining circulation figures because of competition from other glossy tabloid publications.

“This is not the usual media story. It reads more like a Mario Puzo novel: betrayal, guns, bomb threats, large wads of cash, and a good marinara sauce. It’s exactly the kind of story you’d expect to find in the tabloids.” https://thedailybeast.com/how-david-pecker-built-his-tabloid-empire-on-fear

Until 45 came along the only fake news was the National Enquirer and Breitbart! These all all decades long reputable news sources. Just cuz you don’t like what is reported doesn’t make it “fake”. Even Romper Room knows that!

I remember a time when fake news was only mentioned in terms of the National Enquirer. Isn’t it just a different angle on an actual event when it comes to reputable sources? Is his goal to get rid of free press and only take information from the White House with no fact checking?
