    First Daughter Barbara Bush had her purse and cell phone stolen as she had dinner in a restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, even though she was being guarded by a detail of Secret Service agents, according to law enforcement reports made available to ABC News. It was not the only mishap on the two-week trip to Argentina by Barbara (right) and her twin sister Jenna (left). A Secret Service agent on the advance detail got into an "altercation" with someone after a night out and was badly beaten, according to the law enforcement reports. The Secret Service said today the...

    Kevin Costner has been revealed as the celebrity accused of performing a sex act while having a massage at a prestigious hotel in Scotland, after a tribunal ruled there was not a strong enough reason to keep his name suppressed. The Hollywood star was accused of taking off his towel during the massage at The Old Course Hotel in St Andrews, Fife, in October 2004, exposing himself and then performing a sex act. An earlier legal ruling had prevented his identity being revealed, but the tribunal chairman Nicol Hosie ruled that following widespread newspaper and magazine reports outside Britain, as...

    Clay Aiken and ClayNation Undergo New Round of Attacks by James Shepherd (2006/01/28) -------------------------------------------------------- There is nothing like a National Enquirer article to start a new tempest within the ClayNation. This is not the first time that the Enquirer has "picked on" Clay Aiken, but then, the Enquirer and other tabloids like to center on true celebrities because this is what gains them higher readership. Since Clay Aiken is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting and successful recording artists to have come out of American Idol, you really can not blame the Enquirer for doing its job well....

    New drugs could save hundreds of thousands in event of nuke terror attack on American soil The manufacturer of a new anti-radiation drug that promises to save lives in the event of a nuclear attack on U.S. soil says the federal government is dragging its feet on a program meant to provide billions of dollars in help with WMD-related medications, while most Americans sit defenseless in the event of a terrorist nuke strike officials say is inevitable. The federal government in July 2004 set aside $5.6 billion for "Project Bioshield" - an incentive program for industry to produce drugs to...

Malibu resident Gigi Goyette signed the deal on Aug. 8, 2003, with American Media Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer, Star and other celebrity tabloids. That was two days after Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy in the recall election against then-Gov. Gray Davis, according to the Times.

    Your voice: George Clooney It's recently been brought to my attention that my father, Nick Clooney, has been running for Congress from the 4th District of Kentucky. Although he told me, I didn't really believe him until I started reading all the stories about myself in the paper. It seems the best way to campaign against my father is to go after me. The head of the Kentucky 4th District GOP, Marcus Carey, is quoted in the Enquirer as saying that because of me, my father and I will "go down with my ship" - a reference to a film...

  • Why Isn't the Media Asking John Kerry Questions About Printed Allegations of Drug Use?

    Fellow Freepers, this is very important. The National Enquirer recently made allegations that John Kerry used drugs in the recent past. The printed allegations are now part of the public record. In 1999, candidate George W. Bush was consistently pestered by the media to answer questions on whether he had used drugs. Bush answered the question by saying that he could meet the tough anti-drug federal rules, that were in place during the administration of Bush 41, which disqualified people who had used drugs in the previous 25 years. At least, we know that President Bush did not use drugs...

So here goes: "John Kerry is so vain that one former girlfriend says he always wanted to make love where he could see himself in the mirror!" ...The first time he took Hollywood star Dana Delany home, his big move was showing her video clips taken of him in the Navy while he was in Vietnam. She never went out with him again. He dated Morgan Fairchild and Michelle Phillips - and they've both donated to other Democratic...

    Mike Walker of the National Enquirer has been on the Al Rantel show for the past two hours discussing the story which his paper broke about Rush Limbaugh's dependence on prescription drugs, obtained illegally through his housekeeper.

He said they only paid for the story from the housekeeper after she had already gone to the police with her story and evidence. But the most upsetting thing Mike Walker and Al discussed is...

The moralizing motormouth was turned in by his former housekeeper - who says she was Limbaugh's pill supplier for four years.

"There were times when I worried," Cline told the National Enquirer, which broke the story in an edition being published today. "All these pills are enough to kill an elephant - never mind a man."

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rest easy, J.Lo. She says it never happened. Antonella Santini, the exotic dancer featured in salacious National Enquirer stories that purported to detail a sexual encounter she had with actress Jennifer Lopez' fiance, Ben Affleck, has sued the tabloid, saying she never had sex with the "Gigli" actor. But the Enquirer, which published two articles about Affleck's visit to Brandi's all-nude club in Vancouver, British Columbia, and his alleged encounter with Santini, says it is standing by its story. The articles prompted reports in mainstream media that Affleck's engagement to Lopez -- one of America's...

    <p>FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - The wife of Rep. Gary Condit can pursue her $10 million defamation suit against the National Enquirer over a headline that said she attacked Chandra Levy, a judge ruled Wednesday.U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger rejected the tabloid's arguments to dismiss Carolyn Condit's lawsuit. The story was published last summer after the former Washington intern vanished.The Enquirer published headlines on its Web site in July and on its Aug. 7 front page that said: "Cops: Condit's Wife Attacked Chandra."The publication reported that Carolyn Condit called her husband's Washington condominium from her home and "flew into a rage" during a "heated phone screamfest" with Levy. The story, based on an unidentified source, said the confrontation occurred just before Levy vanished.Carolyn Condit said she never met Levy or spoke with her. Washington police have said there was no truth to the report.In his 52-page decision, the judge said the headlines could be interpreted to mean that Condit physically attacked Levy. He rejected the Enquirer's claim that the statements were not defamatory, but said a jury would have to decide.</p>
