Wacko Jacko “Perv” proof, Queen shafts Prince Charles, and Angie “anorexic” (again) in this week’s fact-challenged tabloids

You can’t argue with the facts, and the fact is, this week’s tabloids don’t have many of them. “Wacko Jacko Flunks Pedophile Lie Test!” reports the National Enquirer.

Science at its best. “Proof Wacko Jacko Was Twisted Perv!” proclaims the G...

That’s roughly half of what The LEGO Movie earned in its opening weekend back in 2014. Is this a case of franchise fatigue for the building brick property? Or did the marketing for the sequel just not app...
