National Enquirer and Libraries

Someone shared this link on FriendFeed today: http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/archives/national_enquirer_more_believable_than_new_york_times/

If the National Enquirer continues to scoop the mainstream media on stories like the John Edwards affair does it deserve a move from the supermarket aisles to the regular newspaper location. Do libraries need to consider stocking the paper along with the local paper and The New York Times? Is it just as legitimate a use of library funds as a subscription to People Magazine? Do any libraries already carry the paper? Personally, I am leaning toward the idea that it is proving itself as a legitimate “celebrity” news source and needs to be in the material discussion for a public library.
