Before tabloid journalism became a fixture on television, the National Enquirer was a power player in the media market. The celebrity scandals and coverage, which blurred the lines of fact and fiction, have always been suspect, but the shocking headlines and salacious stories have been enough to keep the establishment open for over 60 years.
Scandalous, a documentary directed by Mark Landsman (Thunder Soul), spotlights the ups and downs of the publication, as viewers will be witness to the National Enquirer’s coverage of Elvis’ passing, the O.J. Simpson murder trial, and the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Featuring rare archival footage as well as interviews from folks in the know, Scandalous aims to cover “the untold story of the National Enquirer.”
