China’s secret war on America, a Fox News sex scandal, and a space-time wormhole in this week’s dubious tabloids

They’ll all be rolling in money thanks to an ad in this week’s edition that tells them: “How to save $19,899,901.” Just imagine what they can do with all that money!

Aggressive New Guerrilla Tactics Target America’s Eviction Machine

On Wednesday, about 12 hours before New York’s eviction moratorium was set to expire, protesters piled into the fluorescent lobby of a Brooklyn office building.
