The end of Weekly World News

This is sad. My favourite wacky tabloid Weekly World News is no more. From FishbowlNY:
R.I.P. Weekly World News. The imaginative tabloid, which gave the world Bat Boy, Ed Anger and a woman celebrating her 7-year wedding anniversary with a space alien, is no more. They're shuttering the publication in August. No reason was given.

...the tabloid's circulation sharply declined over the past five years and there's also speculaton that publisher American Media's financial troubles might have something to do with it.
I do hope that they can still continue publishing - maybe just do an online version via their current website. They can make it into a blog. Worth a shot guys!
