Meanest Story nominee:
Lindsay beyond hope?

Publication: People
Date: 11 October 2010

For the first time, the Gold Standard has a headline that I'm putting in the running for Meanest Story of the Week. The headline reads "Lindsay Beyond Hope? Friends Fear She Can't Get Better".

The tactic of asking a question as a headline is reminiscent of Fox News having stories like "Is Obama a Socialist?" or "Are Death Panels Coming?" For this, People becomes yet another supermarket rag in the running for Meanest Story.

I recall back in the 70's when Liza Minnelli was the LiLo of booze and dope.
She'll either get over it or she won't. She's only 21 or so--her brain isn't even completely gelled yet.
