Murdoch lost his chance with this one. Now that Going Mutant is on the shelves giving us a look at the life story of Bat Boy. Murdoch
is going to wish he had scooped up www.weeklyworldnews.com when the sales of Going Mutant are released

Its amazing how Murdoch buys all these random publications for millions of dollars and they are all looked at as acquisitions that make no sense. The one that he misses is going to be huge - how incredible is that. Ed Anger wouldn't be happy about this comment but, "Down with the big corporations!"

Glad to see that someone is finally recognizing the quality work that weekly world news is putting out. The coverage WWN got from CNN last night about california buying jetpacks was great. See the story at the link below

Miley Cyrus in Playboy!!
Ever since Miley Cyrus turned 16, Hugh Hefner has been trying to sign her up to pose naked in Playboy immediately after her 18th birthday. Finally, with the approval of Miley Cyrus’ parents (Billy Ray and Tish), it’s a done deal – according to reports out of Arizona.

I am going to stop using NYT for my news! WWN may have some false stories, but they break them so much earlier .. just gotta take it with a grain of salt
